    Business simulations are a powerful way to develop training for your employees. With training simulations, your employees can learn by doing. Workplace simulations help the learners to hone their strategic skills and broaden their business perspectives. The basic reason why custom training simulations are effective is that it offers experiential learning to your organization. The process involves hands-on activity and self-assessment, taking concepts and then makes them realistic to the learners. Research has proven that experiential learning is much more effective than any other kind of...

  • Serious Games

    Those who understand the benefit of the gamification of the workplace would probably be tempted to answer that question with a resounding, “All the time!” While that’s true in many ways, it doesn’t hurt to look at some specific examples of issues that can be addressed through the use of games.

    Serious games got their start as simulations for those training in the medical, military, or aviation fields. The trend has grown exponentially into a risk-free environment for learners...

  • Mobile Learning

    The GoLearn initiative of Merrill Lynch experimented with mobile training for its employees. The main aim was to determine how effective Mlearning was. Merrill Lynch deployed its compliance courses on mobile platforms in addition to traditional computers. In a follow-up survey, almost 99% of the respondents who accessed the course on a mobile device said that this mobile learning solution was the best way for them to learn. They agreed that custom mobile solutions were very convenient and...

  • Virtual Reality

    Almost everyone today is talking about Virtual Reality (VR). The U.S. military was one of the early organizations to adopt the use of VR, which it uses for training personnel to simulate combat situations. The aerospace sector also leverages VR for its virtual training agenda. Various studies have indicated the effectiveness of virtual reality in learning. VR has helped football quarterbacks to improve their ability to make decisions by 30%. Jeremy Bailenson from Stanford says that...

  • Serious Games

    The tremendous growth of serious games has touched almost every facet of education. With this expansion, it becomes necessary to delve a little deeper into the different types of serious games, as well as the various structures and purposes that they can have.

    Not only are serious games distinguished from other types of learning activities, but also from other eLearning games. Some games are better for certain kinds of training, while other activities are a better fit with another type.

    A deeper understanding of the distinctive characteristics that fall under the large...
