Abstract

Computer software training is one of the main areas of IT training. A key format of software training in e-learning is simulation. This article examines the most frequently used simulation formats in computer software training, compares development tools and methods in each of the training formats, analyzes the pros and cons of the different approaches, and provides information on the latest trends in simulation development. As rapid e-learning development plays an increasingly important role in training, more and more user-friendly and robust simulation development tools are introduced into the market, and subject matter experts (SMEs) are expected to become the primary resources for content development. Nevertheless, instructional design principles and process should still be an integral part of development methodology for simulation projects.
