Welcome to VEXA!

VEXA is a resource that can enhance any academic course or program by providing transformational virtual experiences that build and promote global competencies.

VEXA works closely with faculty and administrators of each partner institutions in order to align course learning objectives with virtual content. Content consists of recorded cultural videos, live meetings/excursions and social media engagement. If needed, VEXA can arrange for guest lectures from academic institutions abroad to offer academic content as a framework for cultural immersion.

VEXA believes in a well-rounded experience that should expose students to all of the main aspects of a physical trip: language immersion, cultural and social experiences as well a potential for international work experience.

An experience can be:

  • A cultural video that was uniquely created for the program and topic.
  • A live language lesson.
  • A live video stream session, tour, and Q&A. 
  • Local business professionals offering an inside look, tour at a multinational business (by prior arrangement).

Who facilitates the experiences?

VEXA has assembled a community of young guides and collaborators, who live in the ‘host’ country and are locals, but are fluent in English. These guides create content in their home city, or travel to locations relevant to the topic. We closely manage who is in our community and know each of them personally.

We are always looking to expand our community and if you are interested to provide experiences for students, please contact us.
