The modern world offers us more innovative and adaptive ways to learn than ever before. We have handheld devices whose processing power was something science fiction writers could only have dreamed about several decades ago. We have laptops that allow us to work from anywhere, find out any information, video call and conference with one another, and surf the internet with brilliant ease. For most intents and purposes, we have superseded much of the traditional forms of data and information transactions, communication, education, and entertainment. Welcome to the future.
In this piece, allow us to explore the benefits of e-learning, the best tools to support remote teaching and learning, and why we think (regardless of COVID-19) that the future of education was always destined to incorporate remote learning.
Some people have been learning remotely for years, but in light of 2020’s major pandemic, millions have had to quickly react and adapt their educational approach in order to continue learning. Academic and educational institutions around the world have truly done a commendable job this year, and that has been helped by the fact that remote learning offers many advantages, such as:
Aside from typical didactic instruction lessons where students listen, take notes, remember, and are at some points tested on their memorised knowledge, there are other methods of teaching going on. One approach that has been proven to get exceptional results is simulation games, which are applicable to all ages. Developers around the world have found that creating a series of realistic simulations around business activities is perhaps the best approach.
Business simulation games might use a particular type of business to teach about other skills and knowledge, for example, children who play Zoo or Farm Tycoon are learning about animals, hospitality, finances and organisation. Professionals whose employer runs a business simulation game of a product launch are preparing their employees (or students) for the future, for multiple scenarios, obstacles, and more.
One of the great things about simulation games is that they can be performed remotely just as well as they can be performed in person, especially for one-player games. For team-based simulation exercises, communication will be slightly different in a remote scenario, but that’s the biggest change.
StratX has gone to great lengths to create simulation games that can be performed remotely and that will challenge participants to practice a wide range of their theoretical skills and knowledge in realistic environments, all from the comfort of their home.
Distance learning for groups, whether it be children, university students, or professionals on a training course, will demand the need for virtual classrooms. It’s virtually unavoidable. We need to bring people together, to share ideas, to use time wisely, to answer questions, to build rapport, and for many other reasons that also confirm that the physical classroom was always an inevitable necessity.
A virtual classroom, like a traditional classroom offers:
To make sure that your virtual classroom is ideal for your group of learners, make sure that you opt for a platform that offers:
Whilst we could suggest a few remote learning and virtual classroom platforms to you, we wouldn’t want to be seen as biased or pushing connected companies. Rather, we’ve supplied you with comprehensive lists of what makes a quality platform, from an educational standpoint. Our final recommendation is to keenly pursue a way of blending an enjoyable virtual classroom experience with the opportunity for students to experientially learn through simulation exercises.
