Learning Simulations.

What are Learning Simulations?

As the name implies, learning simulations aim to create a simulated learning environment for learners to put their knowledge into practice. It typically follows theoretical learning and is used to test application and hands-on understanding of tasks. As far as possible, the learning environment mimics real life scenarios, such that learners can relate to the activity and consequently apply what they have learnt practically. The reason for mimicking real life situations is because training using actual live experiences may pose a safety risk in some scenarios (e.g. surgical training, military training etc). Hence, simulations provide a safe environment for learners to practice in as realistic an environment as possible.

However, the term “Simulation” often suggests a hefty price-tag. This is true in many situations, as creating a simulated learning environment is extremely complex and does require a lot of thought. Another heavy cost-point is the usage of technology and high-quality graphics to achieve a realistic feel to the simulation.

Reducing the Cost Without Decreasing Efficacy

At Three Learning, our learning designers and developers have collaborated to create a unique simulation framework which dramatically reduces the cost of traditional simulated learning environments, without compromising on the learning design aspect of simulations.

This means that the key elements needed in a simulation (i.e. problem solving, decision making, realistic scenarios and situations, time sensitivity, exploration, etc) are retained, ensuring the effectiveness of the simulation.
