The Baby Boomer era gave us online courses that spoke the passive language of teaching and problems, using lectures and workbooks

Now, Short Sims fill the gaps by speaking the active language of real-world learning and solutions.

On Short Sims...

On Aldrich's Simulation Work...

"Aldrich has done it again.  He has created a solution that makes the room go quiet."

"You know what I wish? If we had it to do over, I wish that the 'e-Learning' business had started with this. That this was the first thing trainers and training departments and creators of authoring tools had seen."

Short Sims Creator Clark Aldrich

Clear.  Action focused.  Visual.  Experiential.  Engaging.  Intuitive.  Flexible.  Sane.   

Short Sims are short simulations that teach leadership, certification, sales, and management skills.  They are quick to play (about 7 minutes), easy to deploy, and are  more effective than traditional online content. 

 

They build competence and conviction, not just awareness and analysis.  

 

Short Sims—platform-independent, non-proprietary, and easily shared—change the affordances of education yet feel familiar, because they mirrors how we learn in the real world.  

 

The creator of the pedagogy, Clark Aldrich, is the world's most experienced designer of educational simulations and an award-winning industry researcher.
