Short Sims

The New Normal for Online Learning

in Corporations and Universities

Example of Custom Short Sim 

 Short Sims are quick, engaging, and focused on "learning to do".  They are they new keystone of online learning, replacing PowerPoint style content

Short Sims are for organizations that need:

Speed - Can be produced far more quickly to help CLOs get in front of their backlogs, and react faster to needs.

Active Content - Are action-oriented, so are more engaging for learners and deliver better results for sponsors. 

Richer Metrics - Track what is learned with more informative and precise metrics.

And are non-proprietary, so can be created using many different tools, and easily updated. 



The cover story of January's TD Magazine heralds a revolution.  'Short Sims' represent a new model of shorter, more engaging content. They may be the first educational media to meet the needs of both learners and sponsors. Get Clark Aldrich's article here.
