I switched to virtual learning half-way through my second RPA course. The virtual classes allow me to focus on course content and discussion rather than social distancing. In the online portal, I am able to take advantage of great resources, such as practice exams, class slides and more. I love learning from my home environment and feel I am getting all of the same knowledge and insight as I did in live classes. Through the chat and video functions, I can still connect personally with my instructors and fellow classmates. Networking is not dead in the virtual age!

With COVID changing how we all live and learn, BOMA/Chicago has made every effort to stay ahead of the curve. When we transitioned to e-learning from classroom learning, I was hesitant because I learn best in-person. But I came to see that the online setting is still a great format to continue my RPA studies. Our instructors have made classes educational and interactive and students are able to ask questions in real time. Just like an in-person class, you are able to hear from other classmates and instructors about their experiences. I was truly impressed with how smooth the classes went, and I feel like I learned just as much as I would in-person. I am looking forward to my next RPA class!

As times are constantly changing, BOMA/Chicago has transitioned to virtual classes where students like myself are able to still engage with the instructor in a “live” setting, including engaging with other students as well. My Leasing & Marketing instructor, Charlie Moriarty, was still available to answer all my questions and further explain key concepts or provide examples for better understanding. I was able to learn so much from other students in my class and listen to their experiences with their properties. Having that still available in a virtual setting was very helpful in my learning!
