Achieving Superior Results in Training

Knowledge Fountain simulations model the dynamic, time-based properties of a real-world environment and its associated processes and procedures. They allow the learner to engage in the decision-making process in a contextual way, setting goals and tasks, formulating and executing plans, and exploring various situational possibilities. The result is a more compelling learning experience, better knowledge retention, higher rate of completion, and shortened learning cycles.

Simulation, unlike traditional learning methodology, facilitates the application of knowledge, not just the transfer of knowledge. Moreover, simulations allow enterprises to leverage the scalability and immersion characteristics to accelerate time-to-competency and depth-of-competency.

Simulators are powerful learning tools. With it, learners can analyze, design, and operate complex business systems. Such models can be used to explore real-world environments too complex to experience by reading, lecturing, quizzing, or other such methods used by conventional e-learning applications. Simulations also allow learners to roleplay, test hypothesis, and engage in decision-making while circumventing the inconveniences, risks, and prohibitive costs of undertaking the actual activities.

Although simulation titles have higher initial development costs, the benefit is that higher numbers of people can be trained. They can be scaled to allow any number of learners/trainees to use them once they are available. They may be used in concert with formal training to practice and participate in additional skill building.

Content can be derived from content experts, educational textbooks, or existing e-learning and training materials.
