While the lines between serious games and simulations can be indistinct at times, as they have many similarities, the differences make them each better suited for certain specific scenarios.
There is no absolute rule as to which method should be used for a given learning situation, and often it is necessary to blend a variety of methods to meet a learning goal.
Serious games don’t have the decades of use behind them that simulations do, but both systems have their place in the modern world of corporate training.
In order to decide what method to use and when, it is necessary to take a more in-depth look at the differences between serious games and simulations.
Simulations work best in these scenarios:
On the other hand, serious games are the ideal scenario in these cases:
As corporations seek to provide their workers with comprehensive and effective learning tools, they will most likely find a combination of serious games and simulations will be their best choice for meeting learning objectives. To determine which would work best for your project, contact us today!
