When are System Simulations Appropriate?
OCTOBER 11, 2011
System simulations, created using software such as Adobe Captivate, serve several purposes when used in eLearning. You can create simulations in several different ways, depending on the type of interaction you are looking for in your course. Types of Simulations. Demonstration (aka Show Me) - Learners watch this type of simulation as a video. While this may be a good way to introduce system navigation, it lacks the interaction required for the learner to truly get “hands on” experience in using the system. Simulations vs. Other Alternatives.
JUNE 9, 2015
When learners interact in an online course, active learning takes place. eLearning interactivity is the actual “thought process interchange” between learners and eLearning tools through which engagement and active learning takes place. Integrating interactions in the content is the key step in the eLearning design process. This step enables learning that is meaningful, recalled easily, as well as evaluated through interactive assessments. Interactive tools are also the only means to connect and collaborate with fellow learners and mentors.
Role of Interactivity in eLearning
MAY 24, 2016
This is where interactive eLearning comes into play. Not only has eLearning interactivity been proven to activate long-term memory, but it also improves attention, promotes motivation, and enhances knowledge retention. eLearning interactions may include simple multiple-choice and true/false quizzes, real-life scenarios with thought-provoking questions, simulations, stories, drag-and-drop interactions, and interactive games that expand learners’ understanding of course material through trial and error.
