Creating Simulations with Muzzy Lane Author
Concurrent Session 7
Muzzy Lane Author is a cloud based service for authoring and deploying simulations and game-based learning activities. This session will show you how it works and send you away with a free account and the knowledge to start building your own simulations!
Interested in adding simulations and game-based learning activities to your online courses but daunted by the complexity and cost? Muzzy Lane Author is a new cloud based service that allows Instructional Designers and Subject Matter Experts to create, deploy, and maintain their own simulations and game-based learning activities. Author is template based which makes it quick and easy to get started building rich simulations. All activities produced run in any browser, are mobile friendly, meet WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility standards, and support the IMS Global Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard for seamless integration into your institutions LMS. Robust assessment options make it simple to map student performance to the learning objectives for the activity. This allows you to cost effectively assess your students ability to apply the concepts you are teaching them.
Key takeaways will be basic training on the Author toolset and a set of demo activities that show how each of the templates can be used to create rich simulations with robust built in assessment. Basic accounts on Muzzy Lane Author are free so attendees will be able to jump right in and start creating!
