About Online Learning

Online learning provides all learners with opportunities to extend their learning beyond the classroom walls. Online learning can take on many forms:

  • Virtual Instruction: Students receive the majority of their instruction (80%+) in an online environment. In the Omaha Public Schools teachers and students use the learning management system, ANGEL, to provide online instruction to students.
  • Supplemental Instructional Programs: These programs are available to students to enhance their regular instruction. These may include programs such as Imagine Learning, Achieve 3000, and TenMarks Math.
  • Webinars: These learning opportunities are brief, direct learning sessions with content experts delivered through web-based software or video conferencing.
  • Online Sites: There are many great websites that provide practice activities, reference materials, and web tools. These sites enhance instruction. Examples of these sites include Starfall, Reading A-Z, Read-Write-Think, and National Archives.
