Students from Columbia University test a new Proseminar format on the Shindig platform.
On April 30, Actuarial Science students from Columbia School of Continuing Education tested a new Proseminar format on the Shindig platform. Thursday’s inaugural online proseminar featured Executive Vice Dean Noor Rajah giving a lecture on pensions.
Students who attended this Proseminar through the online platform received one point towards their grade. The session only took place online, and there was no in-person session.
Over 100 students in attendance took full advantage of the ability to interact amongst each other before, during or after the lecture in private video chat. After completing his lecture, Executive Vice Dean Rajah stayed and spoke with students in the audience.
