More Students Using Video Conferencing to Take Classes

LINCOLN, Neb. More and more students from other districts are taking classes at Lincoln Public Schools through two-way interactive video conferencing equipment.

The LPS District serves as many as 10 remote districts and about 50 non-LPS students each school year.

The video conferencing allows students in other districts to have the opportunity to take classes that may not be offered at their school.

"We've really broken down the walls of our classroom. Our city kids get to know some of the kids from the rural communities and find out they're cool. ," Distance Learning Manager Linda Dickeson said.

The conferencing is not just for high school students. Middle School students can take high school classes as well without leaving their school.

Elementary students can also take virtual field trips to places like the Omaha Zoo and Homestead Monument.
