How do we guarantee that our learners are prepared to perform on the job? Whether you are an instructional designer within an organization or a contracted vendor, there is often a feeling of having little influence on the learning continuum beyond the learner’s consumption of an eLearning module or class session. Not being physically present with our audience, however, simply means that we have to equip managers and others in the institution with the tools and guidance they need to ensure new knowledge becomes job performance.

In this case-study session you will explore simulation as an inexpensive and impactful extension of eLearning. You will discuss the benefits of simulation, as well as practical considerations for building one. You will examine cases that blend eLearning and live, performance-based simulation. You will leave this session understanding how to add simulations to your eLearning strategy.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to evaluate performance with simulations
  • Techniques for developing standardized simulations
  • Options for using simulation as part of your learning-needs analysis
  • Ways to integrate simulation into eLearning deliverables

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
