    [Providers] Benefits of using online assessments
    Provide practice using technology-based test formats. Provide multiple opportunities for learners to practice understanding when quizzes or tests are repeatable. Learning at all stages requires some form of assessment. Even in adult learning progress must be measured in some way. Teachers must find out how well a student has learned regardless of the level and subject of study. Many teachers find frequent, low-stakes assessments an effective way to measure knowledge. Other educators use only mid-term and final assessments within a course. Course benefits. Student benefits.

    More and more education is increasingly being provided in online forms and thus classrooms are progressively more going ‘virtual’ as technologies can now mirror that of the classroom experience (whether this is from the perspective of a business or university platform). The gamified simulation training process is able to take the tools and skills that one must master and provide context and meaning in a replicated ‘real world’ scenario that adds much more interaction than that of the boring pen and paper based lecture type  of teaching methods that may now seem ‘old school’ to some.

    [Providers] Imitating Virtuous Behaviors
    If leaders know this — and if there is a strong overlap between the traditional understanding of how people become virtuous and more recent insights into how people learn something effectively — why is so much of ethics training about providing knowledge of rules and regulations and so little about practicing the behaviors that can create a virtuous organization? Cultivating virtue is a valuable leadership development practice that has implications not only for learning, but for retention and organizational culture. By practicing those behaviors they become habits.
