SimVenture Evolution in China
Working with our Beijing-based Partner Agent SinoCampus, the VSL team plans to start work to provide SimVenture Evolution in China in 2020.
Home to nearly 5,000 colleges and universities, China is in a position to make extensive use of SimVenture Evolution within the education market. The Chinese Government prioritised entrepreneurship education in its most recent 5-year plan (2015) and all indications are that it will build on all work in 2020.
By providing SimVenture Evolution in China, teachers, tutors and students will be able to access and run their own virtual company by logging into their own browser-based personal account.
Virtual bicycle manufacturing company works
As with the original version of Evolution, Chinese users of the software will be able to run a virtual bicycle manufacturing company.
Since China is the world’s leading bike manufacturer and also home to an estimated half a billion bicycles, users will no doubt identify quickly with both the product and the markets within the on-line simulation.
Education delivery changes in China
Education authorities in China have made it clear that they are keen to progress teaching methods and move on from the traditional didactic processes that have dominated education for many years.
The personalised learning opportunities offered by SimVenture Evolution will allow students to engage more with their studies and learn by doing.
In 2017, SinoCampus worked with VSL to create the first ever Chinese version of SimVenture Classic. As a result of this highly successful initiative in China, the business simulation has been supplied to over 500 colleges and universities throughout the country.
The popularity of the business game also led to the first national China SimVenture Classic competition being staged in Nanjing in January 2018. This event underpinned the international finals being staged in London later that year as well as in 2019.
Plans are in place for SimVenture Evolution to become the main competition platform from 2021.
