Simulation Builder

The ETU Simulation Builder is a cloud-based authoring environment for custom simulation development. AI build tools ensure quality simulations every time. Measurement built-in ensures you capture the skills and behavior data you need.


Build sims better and faster

The simulation build wizard empowers authors to quickly and easily create a full simulation model in 3 simple steps. The model is generated automatically, with all decision points, skills, scoring and sections in place. All relevant configurations for the simulation type are also automatically activated.


Create immersive learning experiences

Simulation Builder is designed from the ground up to create highly effective immersive learning. It looks after the learner's UX and UI allowing you to focus on creating realistic situations. Advanced authoring tools are included as standard.

Skills data capture built-in

Unlike other forms of scenario-based learning, the Simulation Builder includes a skills data capture framework. Authors define skills and select a scoring rubric. Each decision is then linked to relevant skills for automatic data capture and later analysis.

Build optimizers allow the author to preview varying branching paths and outcomes that a learner might experience. Anticipating the learners’ choices, the author can adjust the skill scoring and feedback accordingly.

Advanced NLP and AI technologies

Script editing just got a whole lot easier with side by side editing of character dialogue, learner responses and coaching scripts to ensure just the right level of learner challenge and psychological safety.

Build optimizers scan learner decision text for readability, consistency, objectivity and biases. This empowers authors to quickly tweak scripts, improve the immersive experience and remove the possibility for learners to game the simulation.

Accelerate build with templates

Ready-made templates are included for a variety of simulation types such as assessment, developmental, knowledge check, and test-out. Patterns can be easily combined to form more complete learner journeys.

Based on the simulation type selected, recommended configurations are automatically set up which increases build efficiency and enables alignment to ETU best practices.

Right fidelity for the right application

Using real actors and the highest production values is possible within the Simulation Builder. This approach uses the full audio and visual capabilities of the platform to create highly engaging environments. Subtle visual and auditory cues trigger the emotional engagement of the learner.

For those projects that require a quicker and more cost effective cast, synthetic characters created using AI from real actors now provide an accelerated option for many applications. This is particularly useful where there is a significant multilingual localization required.
