The effectiveness of simulations and scenario-based learning is in its design…it is the ultimate “learn by doing” method. It provides learners with an opportunity to apply their knowledge in a realistic and safe environment, providing guidance and coaching along the way.
Simulations and scenario-based learning lead to higher participation, higher completion ratios, and more importantly, higher retention. This is due in part to the scenario-based learning construct in which learners are enabled to engage in a non-linear manner…a reflection of their “real world” experience. They can move back and forth between multiple actions, constructing the learning as they progress.
Members of the Yukon Learning team have been building simulations and scenario-based learning for more than 20 years. In that time, we’ve authored hundreds of simulations and learning games for customers, ranging from regional financial institutions to members of the Global Fortune 100.
These simulations have been used in a variety of ways to enhance the learning process. Some have been used to promote the adoption of new tools and processes, others to reinforce learning and still others to shape impressions and attitudes.
Our simulation authoring capabilities range from simple branching “stories” using still images and text to fully-immersive simulations with video-based characters to replicate human interaction.
We’d love the opportunity to show you some of the simulations we’ve built and share with you more about our simulation development process and the technology we employ. The very best way to do this is with an online demonstration…contact us now to schedule a demo.
