Managing Your Simulation
A series for professors
We’re here to help you become comfortable managing your simulation course. Join us on Fridays at 1PM CT for a 30-minute webinar to gain a better understanding of the professor interface and using the simulation. Each webinar will be divided into two 15-minute segments. The first half will be dedicated to providing tips you can leverage to enhance your knowledge of managing your course. During the last half, you drive the conversation by asking your own questions.

Who Should Attend
Capsim Seminars are great for new or experienced users as well as those looking to learn more about business simulations as educational tools.
The seminar will answer a range of questions relating to our business simulations and assessment tools:
- How do I incorporate a simulation into an existing class structure?
- Can the simulations fit into a compressed schedule?
- Can the simulations be used in an online setting?
- What do I need to get started?
- Do I need training to teach a simulation?
- How do I get support when I need it?
- How will the simulations help with outcome assessment goals?
- How long does the system keep records of our courses?
- What should I do to prepare for the simulation?
- Do I need technical abilities to run a simulation?
- What sort of decisions do students make?
- How do I control the pace of the simulation?
- How do I interpret results?
- How do I grade a simulation?
The Capsim Challenge takes Capstone and Foundation alumni and pits them against each other in a biannual competition to crown the world’s best at running a multi-million dollar simulated company. Twice each year Capsim alumni have the opportunity to test their business acumen against over 1500 competitors from all over the globe. Participation in the Challenge is free. Please see below if you are eligible to compete.
