Question What are virtual programs?
Answer For Asper Executive Education, virtual programs take the in-person experience and transform it into a virtual experience using the video conferencing platform Zoom.

Question How will virtual programs compare to its in-person equivalent?

We have worked hard to ensure that our virtual learning environment is just like our in-person classroom. You can still expect the same knowledgeable instructor committed to helping you develop your executive leadership skills, as well as an engaging learning environment with case studies, discussions and breakout sessions. All of our virtual programs offer the same learning outcomes as their in-person equivalent and provide opportunities to tap into additional functionalities unique to the virtual environment, including polling and virtual chats.

In addition, Asper Executive Education staff will be available throughout the delivery of a program so that if any questions arise during your virtual learning experience, you can reach them for answers using the ‘chat’ function in Zoom.

Question What are the technical requirements for participating in a virtual program?
Answer Use of a computer or laptop with a stable internet connection, functional microphone, speaker and camera is required. Our virtual programs are delivered using the user-friendly video conferencing platform Zoom. If you have not used Zoom before, it is a free application, and very easy-to-use.
