What is Virtual Exchange?

Virtual Exchange is not a substitute for study abroad, but a robust and potentially revolutionary model for transforming the way we approach not only international education programs, but classroom instruction in general. Delivered online and facilitated by a trained program team, this platform offers a framework for meaningful transnational and intercultural experiences and collaboration. Compared to traditional study abroad, Virtual Exchange boasts a low health and safety risk, is environmentally responsible, and is cost-effective. In a world that is increasingly dominated by technology, students enrolled in these programs will learn first-hand to navigate cultural norms, language barriers, time zones and content on online platforms – an integral skill in the ever-changing 21st Century. Most importantly, it enables us to continue to foster global collaboration and connectivity between Africans and the world.
