This was a great course to familiarize myself to the process of simulation. I appreciate all the details and components of the process that help to make simulation such a great learning methodology.

A lot of good information. Feel it is meant for someone with limited simulation experience.

NIce, broad overview of simulation. There were a few broken links that need to be updated.

Comprehensive content; however, the course itself was not well-executed, particularly when one considers the qualifications of the professional educators involved in its creation. The delivery was also overly focused on direct lecture (even the note-taking snapshot feature would capture a photo of the speaker that was larger than the actual relevant content being captured - as though their photo taking up half the note page was essential). I was additionally quite disappointed to find numerous typos - including simple word-choice errors (e.g. 'effect' vs. 'affect') - in the written content. The quiz questions were also poorly written, rife with typos, and in a few cases the "correct" responses were at odds with the content they were intended to evaluate. In summary, while the content itself was robust and worthwhile, the execution of this training experience was disappointing.

The course was very informative and helped give me a starting point for my simulation journey. The content could have been delivered in more ways though. It was difficult to stay focused and motivated with just the video lectures. More interactive content and different learning styles could have been more helpful with engagement and learning.

This course has some excellent information, however some of the links were broken and some of the presenters did not have the articles that they wanted you to read in the resources and I was unsure what they wanted because they did not specify the name article.

This was a good overview and intro to Simulation. A good course to point someone to who is very new to Simulation.

Es bueno y muy estructurado, pero extenso en algunos contenidos.

Being the Simulation Specialist for our center and not the Manger or Educator/Facilitator I found some sections of the course to be dry and boring. It felt like I was listening to a power point. Visual stimulation would have benefited this course greatly. Using b-roll of videos, photos, and materials would make this course a lot more engaging. The last section on SPs had cut-to videos during the presentation which I liked and helped the information I was learning soak in.
