Given the closing of Universities in Italy the fashion, art and design schools part of GGE Italia ensured that over 7,000 students can continue their training without interruption.
Due to the reorganization of teaching methodology and the use of cutting-edge technologies, it was possible to implement innovative and effective educational projects, able to ensure continuity both in lessons and exam sessions.
NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti), which has two campuses in Milan and Rome, with a total of 4,000 students, managed already 10 percent of the didactic activities. Guido Tattoni, director of Education, also started an immediate dialogue through the activation of three webinars dedicated to Italian, international students and teachers to answer questions and doubts.
In addition a telephone service dedicated to students has been activated to meet their educational needs and guide them in the management of every possible scenario. In the next few days, it is planned to implement a remote platform for students who wish to access a fully telematic mode for the discussion of the final thesis.
In Istituto Marangoni, with its three Italian schools and 2,750 students (70 percent of them come from abroad), the didactic approach foresees an integration between online sessions and individual study. The two training centers in Shanghai and Shenzhen have already carried out a distance training plan for several weeks through the Zoom Cloud Meetings platform, in order to proceed with the educational program.
Students from the Domus Academy can follow their courses live in order to allow a real-time interaction with the teacher. The average participation of students at the online courses is 87 percent each session.
GGE Schools are facing this difficult moment in a proactive and efficient way, assuring to all students support and best tools not only to continue the didactic path but also becoming the protagonist of a digital transformation that is involving and reshape the system of high education” says Roberto Riccio, GGE Italia CEO “The E-learning activated by the three schools is becoming a new and interesting opportunity to share, participate and interact that will leave for sure, a sign and will promote new ways to perceive the education in the future”.
