Helping you engage learners in an authentic and interactive business simulation experience they actively enjoy
Online business simulation features
SimVenture Evolution is a business simulation allowing a learner to run a virtual business for up to 10 years in quarterly decision-making periods. All main areas of business are covered:
The Control Tower functionality within Evolution allows tutors to login, setup and manage activities choosing from for a range of different scenarios. Learners are grouped together and then linked to these activities, allowing new learners to be simply added to the group and its linked activities.
Having access to a wide range of reports, including a leader-board, tutors can monitor and assess learner progress in considerable detail.
Evolution runs on a browser on a variety of different platforms – PC, Mac or Tablet can all be used. No technical installation is needed. Users simply log into their account and they are ready to go.
Learners can take part as individuals or as teams. As long as there is an internet connection any user can interact with the system wherever they are in the world.
Help & Support
SimVenture Evolution includes a wealth of information, both textual and visual, to explain the principles of business available once you login.
Extensive help in textual and video form is also available to guide the learner around the user interface and the virtual business world in which they work.

The Control Tower feature is also a real time-saver because it allows tutors to organise student groups, check student progress and gather/assess performance data with relative ease.“
