Intense, real-world, memorable - gamified simulation training


The Science of Gamified Simulation Training

  • Game difficulty adjusts dynamically
  • It automatically adapts to different personalities
  • Statistical data is used to optimize the simulations

Realism and Relevance

We try to be as close to reality as possible and ask ourselves what's really relevant to master a particular role. We create realistic scenarios that closely mirror a work environment to ensure our simulations prepare learners for real tasks, challenges, and transactions.


Explain the "WHY"

Understanding the "WHY" behind content deepens comprehension, with studies showing that learners retain up to 70% more information when they grasp its relevance. As much as possible, we try to explain the purpose of the learning experience to foster critical thinking and encourage the application of first principles to abstract concepts.


Gamify the process of learning

Behavioral surveys show that 70% to 90% of participants find gamified simulations more engaging for learning. Our approach introduces realistic competition to make learning fun, intense, and exciting. Initially overwhelmed, participants quickly adapt and learn the key principles needed for success in the game. Gamified learning creates an effective, dynamic, and enjoyable educational environment.


Kolb's Learning Cycle

The simulations follow Kolb's learning cycle which is an effective model for experiential learning. This cycle accommodates various learning styles, ensuring a well-rounded learning environment for all participants. It consists of four steps:

  1. Concrete learning experience
  2. Reflective observation
  3. Abstract conceptualization
  4. Active experimentation

The 70-20-10 model

As much as possible, we try to follow the 70-20-10 rule as it is a widely recognized learning and development framework that emphasizes the value of experiential, social, and formal learning. It suggests:

  • 70% of learning is derived from on-the-job experiences
  • 20% from social interactions with peers and mentors
  • 10% from formal educational settings

Adaptive Learning

Our simulator adjusts the complexity and difficulty levels based on the learners input variables. This tailored approach ensures each learner receives an optimized experience.


Learning by Doing

We employ learning by doing to help participants explore unfamiliar concepts and processes through hands-on experiences. Learners face real-life challenges they haven't encountered before. This approach fosters deeper understanding, critical thinking, and teamwork skills.

How we create realism within a learning environment

  • The way players interact with the system
  • Scripted versus emergent learning journeys
  • AI is a supportive technology

Experiential Learning

It's been shown that learners retain up to 90% of information through experiential learning compared to just 10% through traditional methods. Our simulations incorporate experiential and social learning as it is a powerful method that bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical skill development through active participation.


Insightful and Straightforward

During a simulation, the admin panel provides real-time participant input data to HR or a facilitator who can coach participants. This data, along with the final results and participant-generated reports, can be used for assessment purposes.
