Learning by Playing > Multimedia Simulations

Multimedia Simulations

Noting that content, experience, and feedback are essential components of successful simulations, and that they must occur in a relatively specific milieu, many multimedia producers are creating programs that mirror a simulation for accessing the abundant, sophisticated (but sometimes hidden) business intelligence. Although most simulations are delivered via CD-ROM, Internet delivery or some combination of CD-ROMs and the Internet or intranet are becoming popular. For an overview of the organizational and learner benefits of these kinds of simulations, see Benefits of Multimedia Training at right.
