eSimulations: Has Live Role-Play Met Its Match?
- Level 4 eSimulations (using a rules-based gaming engine) are extremely realistic. Now that developers can create hundreds (and in some cases thousands) of video-based nodes, eSimulations can accurately reflect small changes in tone and body language. Throw in the use of voice recognition, and you have an unparalleled user experience!
- eSimulations deliver a consistent experience for every user. Notice that I didn’t say the same That wouldn’t be accurate because, in theory, depending on the number of nodes, hundreds could face the same choices and have the same opportunities, but because of the decisions they make, have a completely unique experience. eSimulations eliminate the variability inherent in a live human role-player and can be scored in such a way that they eliminate rater (coach) bias as well.
- eSimulations can provide significantly more practice opportunities than classroom-based live-role play. For each live role-play, you need to engage two people and optimally three, who often then rotate roles. In the same or less time, all three people could accomplish three rounds of practice each, and probably more, through eSimulation.

We know that employee onboarding is essential to retaining new hires, prioritizing employee satisfaction, and maintaining a productive office environment, but the question is: how can an onboarding program be delivered effectively over Zoom and other remote engagement tools?
The Great resignation, and widespread adoption of hybrid and remote work has added further complexity, as employers are challenged to engage and motivate their employees without the guarantee of physical proximity. Winning employers have realized they need to step up their game to attract and retain top talent, which is one reason there’s never been a better time to focus on strategic onboarding.

The complex, team-centric nature of work is reflected in learning and development trends, leading to the growing adoption of cohort-based learning and team-based learning models.
