The benefits of business simulation

Business simulations allow learners to interact with a realistic version of their work environment. A simulation game mixes elements of cooperation, competition and decision making with feedback and repetition. Mirror real business challenges in your simulation story.

When are System Simulations Appropriate?

Integrated Learnings

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. Guided Practice (aka Try Me) – This simulation guides the learner through a procedure. By Dean Hawkinson.

Simulations - Considerations

eLearning Cyclops

Currently, I am involved in creating simulations for a new system application. To avoid the problems I encountered in the past, I strongly suggest making the following considerations prior to developing software or system application simulations. If there is not a test system and you must capture screens in a live system, identify all the tasks you can or cannot do without adverse effects on the system or its data. Can dummy data be added for the sake of the simulation?

Rapid Prototyping Advice for Simulation Software Courtesy Thinking World

Kapp Notes

Here is some rapid prototyping advice courtesy of simulation developer, Thinking Worlds. moment – A “wow” moment could be a camera movement, a particle effect, a sound or an interraction. Finally, when you show the prototype, explain to the audience that it is a rough skeletal version of what you have in mind for the final version. Tags: simulations Use a stock environment with the same general characteristics that the final environment will have.

Creating a Natural, Engaging Conversation in Your Simulation or Game

Kapp Notes

Research indicates that a conversational style is much more effective for conveying content to learners than a more formal style.

How to Record Software Simulation in Adobe Captivate 9

CommLab India

How do you overcome these problems and train your staff effectively so that they become ready to use the tool? E-learning provides the ideal solution to this issue through “ Watch-Try-Do ” simulations. It’s a fairly simple process to record a software simulation in Adobe Captivate.

Some Shortcomings Around Game/Simulation Research

Kapp Notes

Another question related to serious games and immersive learning simulations: “What are the shortcomings in the scholarship/research around. Serious Games/Immersive Learning Simulations? &#. Everyone wants to do a study comparing serious games/immersive learning simulations with classroom or online instruction to see which is better. Also, another interesting aspect is how the studies decide what is “effective instruction.&#

Adobe Captivate: Say Hello to Version 7

Case in point: version 7 of the Captivate software was released today. Easily create simulations and demonstrations that address accessibility standards such as Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 In-course Web Browsing Enable more effective learning by embedding a browser interface within your courses. Edit audio to correct mistakes and pauses, add an external track, or attach sound effects or narration to individual objects. by Kevin Siegel.

The best way to develop communication skills would be through dialogue simulations. But, it is not easy to create dialogue simulations as they require the creation of scenarios, characters, and dialogues for different situations.

Training environment vs. simulations for IT training — and how to get it right

Matrix

When designing training for new software users, a question that will inevitably arise is: Should you go for simulations or for the training environment? There are numerous software tools that allow you to create simulations and can be used as a precursor to a training environment.

Breakthrough eLearning: Simulations: Keeping It Real!

According to a recent survey , it has been found that 98% of organizations are ready to use videos as part of their digital learning strategy this year.Video-based learning is an effective way to explain the sales process as videos are engaging and keep learners hooked to the session.

Formal Learning All the Way.Baby

Kapp Notes

There has been a lot of talk about formal vs. informal learning in the educational blogosphere and when it comes right down to it, formal learning is the most effective. When I visited the Johns Hopkins Simulation Center , we ran a simulation involving a patient heart attack. The actions taken by myself and others occurred in a simulated hospital room using the same equipment found in any hospital room. Tags: simulations Learning at Work Education
