What educators say about SimVenture Validate

“Despite people saying that remote learning is not as effective as classroom teaching, this group have highlighted that high-quality output is achievable in any circumstances if given the right support.”
Professor Tom Cooney
The Validate platform is remarkably easy to use and serves as an excellent teaching tool for students new to the business model canvas… the Validate platform strengthened student entries compared to what we’ve seen in previous years. For students to go through this guided process and come out with a standardised portfolio which we can score in Open Learn Create’s assessment workshop really made the judge’s work easier and the student’s learning experience more enriched.
