Software simulations are a powerful tool to have in your course development toolshed. This interaction type gives learners the chance to master new technology without the fear of making a mistake in a live environment. And with an authoring app like Storyline, recording screencasts and inserting them into your course as a step-by-step process is super easy. Here are four software simulations that show you what’s possible:
- This software simulation example by Dan Sweigert introduces learners to different features in a video editing program.
- This download by Jodi Sandstone shows how you can use software simulations to make learners comfortable using a new mobile app.
- This unique download by Jeffrey Riley shows how screen simulations can be used for process interactions.
- This software simulation example by Michael Hinze shows learners how to work in Storyline.
