Leo Brodie's N•Cyclo
These pages contain some of my experiments in simulation learning objects, also known as "exploratories" and "clip models".
"Advances in technology and learning science, make it possible to create engaging, immersive learning environments that allow students to learn by doing. Computer simulations could let learners tinker with chemical reactions in living cells, practice operating and repairing expensive equipment, or practice marketing techniques – making it easier to grasp complex concepts and transfer this understanding quickly to practical problems. ... Highly visual, interactive systems can allow learners to grasp complex concepts quickly and retain this understanding in ways that transfer quickly to practical problems."
