Virtual Classes. Real Connectivity.
In between residencies, these engaging online classes keep you connected with the academic experience as well as the Darden community.
Approximately one-third of the program core curriculum is delivered via distance learning.
Like every aspect of the program, your online classes are high-engagement experiences. The Zoom Meeting technology allows you to
- Interact with your faculty and fellow classmates by sharing screens
- Writing in comments and questions in real time
- Participate in the discussion by conference call
Because of the ease with which the interface allows you to share and analyze content and spreadsheets as a group, your professors often use online classes to focus on technical issues, allowing for a richer discussion when your class meets together.
Distance sessions are twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and students usually do not have distance learning during the week of weekend residency. Classes are typically 90 minutes long and take place from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30/9 p.m. Recordings of online classes are also available for students who are not able to attend the live class sessions.
