Simulations allow learners to practice and test a variety of controlled situations without consuming data or harming an actual system. mark steiner, inc. has extensive experience constructing engines within eLearning courseware that have simulated a variety of software products and electronic devices. Many of the elements, techniques, and concerns of any type of simulation engine are quite analogous. Most engines are based on the premise of repeating a series of tasks, calculations, and inputs, which in turn derive a set of outputted values and conditions. This document describes and depicts the approach and components that mark steiner, inc. uses for simulation-based eLearning.
