Application Simulations Training

Hands-On Learning to Enable Mastery in Business Applications

In recent years, organizations have started using multiple software applications within each department. It becomes complex for employees to master multiple applications, which only increases with the number of functions, features, and shortcuts that each application has. The best way to mastery is to practice using the application in a simulated environment, which can be achieved with Application Simulations Training.

Accelerate Learner Mastery with EI’s Impactful Execution

Application simulations are process-oriented, no matter how complex a software’s features may be. EI uses the following elements to craft effective application simulations:

Demo Mode:
Learners are shown a video of the process/ use case in the software.

Practice Mode:
After viewing the demo, learners go through a guided practice by following step-by-step prompts on screen.

Test Mode:
After the guided practice, learners are tested on what they learned in the demo and practice mode. This is without guided prompts, and is scored.

Read More Mode:
Learners are provided with PDFs as quick reference guides.

Adaptability with Multiple Learning Strategies Enhances Engagement

  • Microlearning: Learners are shown a video of the process/use case in the software
  • mLearning or Mobile Apps: This strategy can be used to drive anytime, anywhere learning. Such bite-sized learning also helps with motivation and retention
  • Gamification: This strategy primarily uses video-based learning with elements of gamification as part of assessments, such as timers and score meters
  • Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality: Application Simulations can also be made immersive and experiential for high-end applications with branched learning paths

The EI Edge Helps Propel Your Employees towards Higher Productivity

For application training, companies traditionally relied on live sessions with a limited pool of experts/facilitators. With EI’s expertise, your employees will understand each application to the required depth, with instruction geared to meet them where they are.

We have successfully delivered several hundred hours of high-impact Application Simulations – whether it is for new application rollouts or upgrades to existing ones. The ROI has been significantly higher in mass implementation scenarios spanning several geographies due to the scalability of the solutions.
