A fourth, 100% virtual campus
NEOMA was the first school in Europe to open its permanent virtual campus in September 2020. It is a unique innovation in Europe due to its scope in the world of education technology, which demonstrates NEOMA’s commitment to high education innovation and stands as a creation of a new learning environment at the crossroads of in-class and remote learning.
A high-quality immersive experience
Avatars interacting in virtual spaces
NEOMA students, professors and employees take form online as personalised avatars.
Taking or giving a course, joining a work group, attending a conference while also playing sports or taking a boat ride, everyone meets up in this new space, just like on a real campus.
The virtual campus is an environment added to the existing learning spaces, guaranteeing the richest academic experience possible, even remotely, in addition to the in-class courses.
Services accessible just like in real life
The range of the school’s services, such as the Talent & Career Development Unit, the Wellness Centre, the library and the incubators can also be accessed on the virtual campus.
Students can receive personalised support and have an academic experience as if they were on campus.
Collaborative work and discussions are encouraged
Accessible twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, it allows everyone to connect anywhere in the world, international students and professors as well as those on exchange or doing internships abroad.
The virtual campus also hosts seminars and meetings and serves as a collaborative workspace between NEOMA students, professors and employees.
The design quality and usability of the personalised avatars further stimulate the immersive experience. The virtual campus creates a sense of connection, enables natural reflexes in group situations and recreates spontaneous interactions, typically weak points in videoconference platforms.
An innovation in partnership with Laval Virtual
To make its dream of offering a 100% digital campus a reality, NEOMA established a partnership with the association Laval Virtual, an expert in immersive VR/AR technologies.
This collaboration also offers the students special access to events organised by Laval Virtual based on virtual reality, augmented reality and other immersive technologies.
A unique opportunity to mix business culture and tech culture to foster a blending of skills highly sought after by companies!
