Training Simulations: An Effective Corporate Training Tool

Designing Digitally

In a world where time is money, businesses are learning that they can be most productive by using training simulations as opposed to a more traditional approach, which requires key employees to step away from their tasks in order to train and it can also affect production.

Benefits of Using Simulations

Your Training Edge

We’ve discussed some good reasons to implement simulations in your organization. Let’s take a look at the distinct advantages of simulations over other types of training interventions. The organization will have to do less cleanup if mistakes are made in a simulation environment.

Simulations versus games

Clark Quinn

At the recent Realities 360 conference, I saw some confusion about the difference between a simulation and a game. Simulations. As I’ve mentioned, simulations are models of the world. You can also think about simulations as being in a ‘state’ (set of values in variables), and move to others by rules. Similarly, these simulations can model considerable complexity. Note that you may already have a simulation.

Simulations in e-Learning: The power of experiential learning

G-Cube

Simulation-based e-learning is one such mode of training which is being extensively utilized in the corporate training. Simulations allow the learner experimentations to be close to real-life situations, thus opening up the vast expanse of ‘doing and learning’.

Strategies for Creating Simulations in e-Learning: Helping Learners to Apply More
