Since the launch of our latest digital marketing simulation, Digital Markstrat, several of our esteemed instructors have already tested the action-based learning tool in their courses. Recently we sat down with 4 of them via Zoom conference, where they shared their feedback on how their experience went. They explained specifically what they found useful, what worked particularly well, and what their participants retained, and how Digital Markstrat creates impact, whether used virtually or face-to-face.
Creating engagement virtually with Markstrat & Digital Markstrat – Associate Professor Tarun Dewan
To boost marketing and digital marketing concepts in an engaging and interactive way, Associate Professor Tarun Dewan did an exciting experiment with his Marketing students. He ran Markstrat as a complement to his 4th year undergrad capstone course, and used Digital Markstrat for a group of students who had already graduated and didn’t have the opportunity to use Markstrat yet. Due to the pandemic, he ran the programs 100% virtually. Here he shares his experience using both simulations this past summer at the University of Toronto – Scarborough.
