eLearning and Distance Education

The Office of eLearning assists with the integration and the implementation of technology that enriches learning experiences for all students.  eLearning works in collaboration with all district departments to support the Omaha Public School's mission of providing educational opportunities which enable all students to achieve their highest potential.

Blended and Virtual Learning

As technology tools and resources continue to evolve at a rapid pace, the understanding of how to harness these emerging technologies to enrich curriculum, instruction, and assessment remains at the forefront.  The ability to consume digital content, and the creation/recreation of content as a result of learning allows curriculum to rise above the textbook and to come alive in the hands of students.

Distance Education, Video Conferencing, and Virtual FieldTrips

Video conferencing uses audio and video technologies to connect users anywhere in the world as if they were in the same room. Teachers and students may use video conferencing equipment to teach a class to students in another school, receive specialized instruction, meet with committees or confer with peers, or participate in virtual fieldtrips around the world. The eLearning Office facilitates the sending and receiving of distance education courses, video conferencing events, and virtual field trip activities. The ESUs in the state of Nebraska partner in the maintenance of a curriculum clearinghouse to assist schools in course or field trip opportunities.
