Online Learning Exchange™ (OLE) is a K-12, web- and mobile-ready learning environment of rich digital media, leveled by grade, grouped by topic, and aligned to state standards. Each OLE course comes with a variety of engaging resources to enhance your digital lessons, including videos, simulations, interactivities, quizzes, electronic worksheets, teacher background notes, and much more.
NBC Learn video streaming on OLE includes over 16,000 streaming videos that help teachers engage students with current, relevant content.
We've devised 5 Best Practices as a guide to help you use OLE to create authentic learning experiences that will reinforce the skills that your students need in order to be college and career ready.
Engage & Discover
Introduce a topic or lesson using engaging content you find in OLE. Easily project the content you find for full classroom instruction or guide students as they discover content in OLE on their own.
OLE's Class Discussion Boards are a great way to help students make connections to content and concepts by connecting with their peers inside and outside of the classroom.
Give students some freedom in choosing how they want to demonstrate their understanding of a topic. Whatever medium feels right to them can be easily attached to their assignments in OLE.
Encourage your students to share their work with their peers, parents, and experts. Giving students a chance to teach others about what they know not only contributes to the broader learning community but it reinforces key concepts in their own learning as well.
Use the OLE Class Discussion Board to track your students learning journey. At the end of a lesson ask students to reflect on where they've been, what they've learned, and how they plan to continue their learning journey.
