Experiential learning is the most effective. But since real experiences are hard to come by and expensive, simulations are the next best learning tools. Learning in PrecisED happens while students are in virtual real-life settings.
Simulated Reality based virtual courses makes the need to know the theoretical concepts abundantly clear.
Apart from the usefulness of what is learned, knowledge is imparted in a concise and intuitive manner.
In some courses, the materials are available both as Text as well as Videos. Each has its advantages.
Text: It is easier to read text at a chosen pace than to adjust comprehension to the speed of the video. It is also easier to reread.
Videos: Many people find videos more engaging.
All courses in PrecisED have technology built in to make them totally stand-alone and complete.
Students are tested, their answers graded, their decisions saved, and feedback is provided in real-time and at appropriate times.
Technology is leveraged for optimal human learning.
To encourage critical thinking, the simulation requires participants to list the pros and cons of some of their decisions. Then, specially developed Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing Algorithms are deployed to assess their critical thinking.
Humans are available when AI fails.
