Here are some reflections from educators who currently use 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
Chris reflects on how SimVenture Validate helped to develop students’ thinking skills. Students found that they learned how to forecast the development of their businesses and was a real Eureka moment for students which helped to transform their businesses.

Let us help you engage and inspire your students with an experiential learning platform, a plan that works for you and technology with which your learners will be excited to engage.

“The Validate platform is remarkably easy to use and serves as an excellent teaching tool for students new to the business model canvas…….asking students to use the Validate platform strengthened the 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”
