In a short amount of time, the internet has grown to play an unmistakably large role in the way the world operates on a daily basis. Most notably, this technological and societal shift has impacted the way we learn and grasp information.
Create engaging and effective training experiences
Adapt learning to styles most relevant to the learner
Provide actionable feedback to the learner as they learn
Train staff anywhere, anytime, at their own speed
Deliver training that is free from trainer bias or omission
Be more certain that learners are truly job-ready
Increase staff performance, satisfaction and retention
In its simplest definition, eLearning is training content hosted on an online platform. With it, learners have access to a large amount of information and can distribute learning content and test learner understanding.
eLearning provides a variety of benefits to all who use it - learners, trainers
The term simulation means different things to different people.
Take pilot training for example. Flight simulators allow pilots of all experiences to practice or learn new maneuvers that could potentially save an entire flight. The simulation allows pilots to practice safely and repeatedly until they feel confident with their procedures.
Simulation learning gives trainers the ability to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of their learners while protecting them from unnecessary risks. It also gives learners a platform to learn, mitigate and resolve issues - improving their decision-making skills. Simulation learning comes with many benefits, but most importantly, the ability to practice real-life scenarios with no consequence gives learners a personalized and authentic experience, preparing them thoroughly for when they tackle situations in real life. This is particularly important for practicing and perfecting procedural skills that need to be deployed to a high standard in high-consequence industries.
Scenario-based eLearning (“SBeL”) supports active learning by putting the learner into branching scenarios, or interactive forms of learning that challenge the learner to make decisions before then presenting the consequences. This unguided problem solving is based on the principle that learning best takes place in the context in which it is going to be used, resulting in productive failures (making mistakes and learning from the consequences).
SBeL presents a compelling and
Scenario-based eLearning is especially effective when used to simulate real-world practice - practice which can be particularly vital in mission-critical organizations that can’t afford to make a mistake. It allows learners to make better decisions based on the knowledge they have gained through their experience and also through the training as the learning goal for many organizations is to increase both the employees’ and the company’s productivity. Therefore the investment in learning has to pay off as the learner has to learn and apply his new knowledge and skills.
