In this article, we present the new online concept developed by Stefan de Dios Panal as well as its main challenges and benefits.

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.
