What is Simulation-Based eLearning?

Modern eLearning technology has made “learning by doing” possible through simulation-based eLearning. A simulation is a controlled environment that mirrors real-life conditions so learners can learn practical skills for the real world without risks or the fear of failure.

Simulation-based elearning uses specific tools, software, and engaging strategies to create hands-on learning experiences that facilitate virtual practice and knowledge application.

In simulation-based elearning, learners develop familiarity with the subject matter and its application through trial and error and the resulting insights. It’s an excellent tool for familiarizing learners with the different types of situations they might encounter in reality and how to navigate them.

Simulation-based elearning is a highly effective eLearning strategy to opt for when applied practice is crucial for effective learning. It ensures learners’ safety and reduces the risk of errors.

Key Considerations while engaging a Simulation-Based eLearning Partner Partner

When picking a vendor for simulation-based training programs, their experience will determine the quality of their solutions, services, and deliverables. Typically, a company with a team of industry experts who have years of learning and talent development experience will be better equipped to address your needs. You will also need to consider the vendor’s experience working with the specific sector you belong to.

The specific eLearning tools a vendor uses influences the ideation and development process. Vendors that use the latest applications and programs are able to come up with interactive training solutions and execute them within reasonable timeframes.

Simulation-based learning combines knowledge from various fields, such as design, psychology, pedagogy, and learning and development. A vendor with a multidisciplinary team can provide more holistic solutions that thoroughly address your business’ and learners’ needs.

It is also necessary to consider how collaborative the eLearning vendor is. The development of simulation-based training is a multi-phased process and requires consistent back and forth between the client and service provider. A collaborative vendor will keep you updated and be quick to incorporate feedback, changes, and suggestions.

Lastly, it is wise to pick an eLearning vendor that can provide post-delivery support if the need arises. In other words, a client-centric service provider. This way, businesses can ensure that their eLearning solutions don’t end up becoming unusable when running into a hitch.

Benefits of Simulation-Based eLearning

Scenario-based learning facilitates experiential learning by giving learners a hands-on learning environment in which they have some agency and choice. By exploring and interacting with these simulated environments, they begin to think critically about them, allowing them to gain valuable practical insights.

Simulations are safe learning environments where learners can learn through trial and error and make mistakes without the pressure of real-world consequences. This protects them from risks and hazards and also protects the business from potential safety issues, errors, etc.

Simulations are highly engaging and immersive learning environments as they utilize interactive elements and learning strategies. Learners are not passive recipients of knowledge in simulation-based learning. Instead, they actively explore the learning environment and gain information through this exploration. This creates a highly motivating learning experience.

Well-designed simulations allow learners to understand and rehearse what they are learning. It develops learners’ confidence and discretion by bridging the gap between theory and practice.

Simulations provide repeated practice opportunities, allowing learners to rehearse skills and revise information they haven’t quite gotten the hang of yet. Simulation-based learning, thus, facilitates the mastery of complex skills so that learners can confidently apply them in the real world.

Simulations eliminate the need for extensive classroom training modules by leveraging technology to develop highly efficient eLearning programs. Simulation-based learning is quicker than traditional hands-on learning and facilitates faster knowledge acquisition. Additionally, developing simulation-based training programs is less resource-intensive than designating a physical space to such kind of learning.
