Discovery-based learning. Reinvented.

LabAix introduces a new approach to instruction and learning built around games — serious games — called Websims. Players — students and trainees — will be actively interacting with dynamic models, deciding, acting, and seeing the immediate consequences of their actions. Professors, coaches and training sessions' animators will be able to achieve a successful transition from sage on the stage to guide on the side *

Websims provide virtual environments in which students and trainees explore a number of issues, manipulate objects and perform experiments. Powered by game mechanics, they help achieve increased levels of engagement and a better understanding of complex issues.

Discovery-based Learning

Websims can be typically used in business and engineering schools — as well as in corporate universities — to teach key concepts such as finance, marketing and strategy (business administration application), or, to train new recruits on how to operate a system — a water treatment plant for example (engineering application).

Websim-powered Training Session

Professors can request administrator accounts, which would allow them to setup new sessions, manage existing ones, and access a number of pedagogical resources. Administrator accounts will also grant them access to participants' results in real-time, providing a support for conducting after action reviews of what happened, why it happened, and how it can be done better.
