We are happy to announce new and improved features for our recently released single-player simulation TOPSIM on Demand – Business Challenge. This brand new version offers even more flexibly for your seminars and minimizes your workload.
Dear TOPSIM – users and friends,
the outbreak of coronavirus in 2020 came unexpectedly for all of us. During these uncertain times, we made every effort to keep on working hard in new and changing conditions to support you, our customers, with our products, our knowledge, and our services.
Our team is always here to support you for your employee training and organizational development initiatives – and to keep everyone safe and healthy. That is why we have developed the TOPSIM – Safety Concept for upcoming on-site seminars. In this article we would like to demonstrate how we can help you and your organization with our simulation-based seminars.
For over two month no face-to-face lectures took place at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) Stuttgart. Every year, 200 simulation-based courses are held for 5,000 students at the Faculty of Business and therefore the university faced a very special challenge. In May, the first virtual simulation-based seminar took place, during which two courses participated in the business simulation TOPSIM – General Management entirely online. In this article, Birgit Zürn and Stephan Kraft share their experience on how an online simulation-based seminar can be conducted.
Like many other universities, the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg had to switch to a digital semester. The business simulation needs to be played remote as well – even if it is offline. During the whole semester students from the bachelor Business Administration as well as from the bachelor European Business play TOPSIM – Startup! Production, which today is TOPSIM – Manufacturing Management. In this article, André Philipps shares his experience with offline simulations in distance learning format.
