  • Who can use RealGame business simulations?
    RealGame works particularly well in Higher Education (HE) in a variety of disciplines including business, supply chain management, industrial engineering, production management, management accounting, and others. Lecturers, university teachers and professors can use RealGame simulations on their courses. RealGame licenses accommodate individual courses, departments, faculties or schools depending on the need. Check more details on the RealGame Teaching Page.
  • What are the benefits of RealGame simulations for educators?
    Flexibility and ease of use. Multi-campus/multi-site teaching. Integrates the content of various disciplines. Supports student-centered learning approach. Access from anywhere - Classroom and virtual teaching. Using clock-driven simulations with a focus on processes. Cloud-based service with no installation and no maintenance.
  • What are the benefits of RealGame simulations for students?
    Digital learning environment. Collaborative learning during gaming ​Based on robust pedagogy and research ​Dynamic business processes on a transactional level. Develops teamwork, communication, and decision-making.
  • What is the added value of using an educational simulation in teaching?
    * Educational simulation covers learning that is difficult or not possible to achieve with other learning methods. Real-time operated simulations can reveal the dynamic nature of business processes to students. Academic research has found that after about one hour, approximately half of the information that was learned is forgotten. After 24 hours, about two-thirds of the information is forgotten, and after just 6 days this drops to 75%. * Game-based simulation learning can help mitigate the effects of the Ebbinghaus forgetting curve (1885) by providing an interactive and engaging way to review and repeat information. This type of learning allows for the active application and reinforcement of knowledge through gameplay, making it more likely that the information will be retained in long-term memory. * Peer learning has been found to be an effective learning method, and in real-time processed RealGame collaboration is more intensive and motivating than in other kinds of simulations. * Simulations provide holistic learning - students learn about the dynamic structures of larger systems and how each part of the system contributes to the outcome.
  • Which features distinguish RealGame from other business simulations?
    The most unique feature of RealGame is its real-time processing. This means that everything in RealGame evolves hour-by-hour under the eyes of the learners, providing a transparent view of business processes. In other words, students do not need to guess what happens in operations, as they can witness it directly during their simulation experience. This is a huge advantage compared to traditional turn-based business simulations. Real-time processing also brings along other advantages. RealGame generates transaction-specific events on e.g. single purchases, deliveries, and products that offer an insight into how processes evolve during a specific period instead of just a snapshot of the end-of-the-period situation. A simple example illustrates the difference: which one is more important for understanding inventory management: the inventory value at the end of a period or a graph illustrating day-by-day inventory value development? The transaction-specific data generated in RealGame is very fruitful for analyzing business performance and cause effects. This analysis can be done with RealGames’s versatile Business Intelligence application. In addition, data can be exported from RealGame to different data analysis tools, such as Power BI. Due to the real-time nature of RealGame, we can offer an extremely authentic, immersive, and motivating environment for students. We are happy to hear that many students regard RealGame as their best learning experience during their university studies!
  • What are the learning outcomes from the RealGame business simulations?
    Learning dynamic phenomena, such as business the way they are – constantly evolving, simultaneously proceeding, and time-dependent – brings huge benefits to students’ understanding of systemic processes. RealGame is clock-driven, so students learn the dynamics and interdependencies of business operations and supply chain management in a unique way. They gain a holistic view of business and learn to observe the effects of their decisions and balance the supply chain, real-time.
  • What topics do RealGame business simulations cover?
    Basics of Supply Chain Management. Advanced Supply Chain Management. Business and Operations Management. Basics of Business Dynamics. Management Accounting. Procurement and Inventory Management. Would you like to check our simulations with more details? Check our Simulations page.
  • Can I use RealGame business simulations in face-to-teaching?
    Absolutely! RealGame is excellent for classroom teaching with a moderate number of students (under 100 students). All that is needed is an internet connection and one laptop per team of students. Benefits of classroom teaching with RealGame include high intensity of collaboration and communication within teams, and opportunity to be energized by observing the other teams. Teachers can easily observe the progress of teams in a classroom setting and offer advice when needed.
  • Can I use RealGame business simulations in online teaching?
    As a cloud-based learning solution RealGame is ideal for online teaching. It facilitates very large student groups (up to 200 students per session), and promotes collaborative learning online. RealGame sessions can be carried out with your preferred VoIP solution (Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, Webex etc). Teams can work in breakout rooms, and will be assembled to join the general assembly for result sessions. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we received a lot of appreciative feedback from RealGame teachers telling that their students loved how RealGame fostered collaborative learning online.
  • How many students can participate in RealGame business simulation?
    There is no limit on the number of participants to use the simulations. But in each team, between three and four members can work at the same time.
  • What technical prerequisites are needed for using RealGame Business Simulations?
    Having a computer system and internet access is enough to use the real game simulator. You do not need to install any program, as RealGame is a cloud-based service.
  • How much do RealGame simulations cost?
    Based on your teaching needs, class size, and the selected RealGame simulation model(s) we are happy to make a proposal for you including a detailed description of the resources, materials, and support we provide for RealGame teachers and their students. For more information, please send your request by message. we will get back to you as soon as possible!
  • How to prepare for using RealGame business simulations?
    We will organize a training session for you, and during the simulation, our support team will answer your questions.
  • What kind of support and resources will there be for me using RealGame simulations?
    RealGame teachers will be provided with a training package including online training, videos, and game manuals. Teachers have access to a selection of lesson plans, ready-made student assignments, and teaching aids. We have also invested in teacher support in the simulation environment, automating features that move the burden from the teacher to the simulation. These include smooth simulation set-up, online self-learning materials for the students, and online help for students in their user interface. In addition, we offer RealGame teachers the opportunity of having our expert online for the first simulation session, acting as co-teacher. For the teacher, RealGame is straightforward to use, and with the full range of teachers’ and students’ resources and support you can expect enjoyable and effective educational sessions. For more information, keep in touch with our support team by sending message!
  • How can I test a simulation before I finalize my order?
    We are happy to arrange an online demonstration for the faculty, and employ our knowledge of digital pedagogy and learning to discuss which RealGame simulation would best suit your teaching needs.
