Moving your class online using Interpretive Simulations

We look forward to working with you!

We appreciate how difficult it is to move so quickly into online classrooms, but our goal is to make that transition as smooth as possible. Using simulations can increase the engagement with the content of your class! We can do this together. 

It’s easy to review our simulations! Request a demo and we’ll set you up with a Faculty access that will allow you to peruse all of our materials and to play the simulation yourself. Plus, we’re glad to do a web meeting and walk you through the simulation, answering all your questions. 

For some tips on Best Practices for using simulations online, download our guide that we’ve created for our customers. If you have more questions, we would be glad to talk to you. 

100% Web-based

Our Simulations and our Resources are 100% accessible through a web browser. They’re already set up to be used on a computer and most students flawlessly navigate through them.

Support

We are ready to support you, whether it’s to set up your class, help you get to know our simulation and our resources, or answer student questions. We’re committed to giving you personalized assistance!

Learn By Doing

Our simulations put the student in the seat of making decisions for a business, in a variety of roles so they must take what they learn in your class and materials, and apply it to their business.

Customizable

Our simulations are typically played throughout the whole term, but they can also be done over an intensive shorter time. We’ll set up your simulation to best suit your needs.

Assessment

Nothing indicates that a student understands business concepts than a measure of how well they used them when they needed to. Our simulations provide that environment for you.

Resources

Each of our simulations comes with numerous resources, including Assignments, Quizzes, etc. You can use these materials to help deepen your students’ understanding of the concepts you teach!
