So how can you make sure that your classes remain interesting while utilizing a new learning platform that doesn't drain all your time? Here are 3 ways Cesim business simulation games save you valuable time that you can refocus on teaching your students tangible and applicable business skills.
Key features of Cesim business simulations:
✓ Intuitive user interface

1. Quick Setup
While there are still a lot of learning tools out there requiring you to install a program on your computer (often making that program tied to that particular computer), online simulation games are ready to run on any device with an internet connection.
Creating a course is no more difficult. Simply select the simulation you'd like to use in your course, define the course name and course code (the latter will be your course's unique code that students will use to join), and finally the schedule. If you already know the times allocated for your course, this entire process won't take longer than 5 minutes.
2. Tutorial Videos and HTML Manuals
Give a head start to your business simulation based courses by providing your students with the tutorial video links for the online business simulations they are going to play. This will help you familiarize them with the learning environment already before the class, in an intuitive 10-15 minute/video format.
Another excellent tool at your disposal is the HTML version of the Decision Making Guides. These can be accessed from under the 'Readings' tab in all Cesim's business games, and gives your students the possibility to read about the business strategy games' process in more detail as well as search for various keywords in the documents.
3. Results are Calculated Automatically
Are you swamped with exams and term papers to correct, let alone worry about business simulator games' deadlines?
Then this will be a relief. Not only are the results calculated in less than a second after the round deadline has ended, but it is a process that is entirely automated. What this means is that once your course schedule has been finalized, the only thing you need to monitor is the results as they are generated for you in a downloadble excel, slideshow and printable format.
