Throughout the pandemic, York University Startup Hubs ‘Schulich Startups’ and YSpace have held more than 200 online learning sessions for Schulich/York Student and Alumni Entrepreneurs and Innovators. This project aims to create a virtual repository out of the rich content recorded during these events, and to turn them into long-term asynchronous e-learning assets.
The video assets will include invaluable information from conversations with Startup Founders, Venture Capital Leaders, and Industry Experts, which can be accessed by thousands of students in Schulich’s Entrepreneurial Studies Program, YSpace Founders, and Entrepreneurs across York University and the region more broadly.
These can be incorporated into courses as asynchronous e-learning assets and would allow on-demand access based on key topics. This initiative will also advance the internationalization of innovation education within the university, with video recordings from international trainers, mentors, and leaders.
