Because of the corona pandemic the bbw university of applied sciences had to switch to online lectures in this semester. The university of applied sciences already has lots of experience with distance learning. We talked to Johannes Kirch, professor for personnel management and corporate governance about teaching during corona and the use of a TOPSIM – business simulation for master students.
During summer semester 2020 bachelor students at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences had the chance to test the new strategy business simulation TOPSIM – Scale Up in the beta-phase. We talked to Thomas Temme who played the simulation with a group of international students.
In March 2020, the International Business Week took place at the Kaiserslautern University of Applied Sciences. Since 2010, Prof. Dr. Christian Armbruster gives students the opportunity to learn in a gamified way and make international contacts. Our TOPSIM – Business Simulations support this project.
At the EBZ in Bochum, which offers a wide range of training opportunities for the housing and real estate industry, students had the opportunity to complete a simulation-based module with TOPSIM – Startup. Ines Leistenschneider, teacher of business administration, explained to us to how the simulation supported the course.
The cancelling of attendance events due to the Corona crisis has also affected the DHBW Ravensburg. For the planned seminar with the offline-version of the business simulation TOPSIM – General Management, an online solution had to be found at short notice. In this blog article we present the online seminar concept with alfaview® that Dr. Manfred Schertler-Rock has developed for this situation.
