Getting Started with Simulations

April 4, 2018

Live Online Event

Today, eLearning simulations are becoming more widely adopted in learning and development as research reveals the value in experiential learning. Additionally, learners seek rich interactive learning experiences, and newer, inexpensive tools are lowering the barriers to entry for many L&D professionals. Simulations can be an exciting and effective offering from learning and development.

The Getting Started with Simulations Spotlight will help you rethink how simulations are being developed and used in 2018. You’ll discover new approaches to creating simulations, learn how to build simulations with the tools you already have, and get tips for creating more immersive learning experiences. Even if you have done simulations for learning before, you’ll learn new skills that can make a big difference in your work.

101: eLearning Simulations Overview: From Idea to Implementation

An eLearning simulation is one of many dynamic options for a learning solution; however, the approach can be a unique undertaking. In this session, you’ll learn the critical steps to move a simulation from design to evaluation. You’ll also develop strategies for working with SMEs and navigating the QA process. Learn more.

201: Storyboarding Techniques for Designing an eLearning Simulation

eLearning tools today can make it very easy to jump in and start developing a simulation. However, the risks of leaping over effective design far outweigh the rewards as objectives are missed, scope creeps, and technology beats out learning. This session will explore the importance and advantages of storyboarding for an effective simulation. Learn more.

401: Tools and Techniques for Producing Authentic Video-Based Simulations

Video is the medium of choice in many eLearning solutions. But adding video to your eLearning strategy may not be enough; success depends on knowing when and how to use it. This session will analyze several videos created for soft-skill simulations, and explore key considerations when filming and editing video for simulations. Learn more.
