Covid-19 undoubtedly left its mark on the Erasmus University Rotterdam, since our lovely and buzzing campus had to be promptly left behind and was replaced by online lectures.
As loneliness kicked in among the Erasmus community due to the restrictions on social interaction, it was time to look for opportunities. ErasmusX – a disruptive innovation unit of the university – thought to themselves: If our physical campus is unavailable until further notice, why not just build a virtual version we can all visit from the comfort of our home instead?
So we did! We’ve built the first Virtual Campus in the Netherlands.
