At the heart of the GMAP program are the online discussion boards. These boards allow students and professors to continue the conversation and learning that began during the residencies. The platform was designed to facilitate these discussions, and bring the GMAP and Fletcher experience to students wherever they are based.
Platform independent and mobile-compatible, the GMAP system allows students to complete coursework while continuing to work and travel. It also allows students to download all video lectures and readings, so course materials are accessible even without a reliable Internet connection.
GMAP's busy, mid-career students have different technology needs than on-campus students. To meet these needs, the program has a dedicated technology staff just for GMAP students. During the residencies,the GMAP staff helps students master the skills necessary to complete the program. And throughout the program, they provide support as needed. The GMAP Tech Team is dedicated to taking care of students' technology needs, so they can focus on getting the most out of the GMAP year.
