JeLSIM: Java eLearning Simulations

JeLSIM continues to develop the eSim Builder software originally produced by MultiVerse Solutions Ltd, a spin-out from Heriot-Watt University, At Heriot-Watt, the founder members were researchers within the Institute for Computer Based Learning. Whilst under development at MultiVerse, tools were in receipt of two SMART awards for tool development from the Scottish Executive.

Jelsim Builder is a tool for the rapid production of interactive simulations (Jelsims). These can be rapidly produced and easily deployed to the web, intranet or online learning course through a standard browser as a Java applet. Previously, simulations were expensive to produce, bespoke programmes whose code could not be re-used. The unique JeLSIM software separates the behavioural model from the visualisation so that the model can be re-used and adapted according to the purpose or standard of user experience.

We have a well-developed philosophy (see this JelsimPartnership.pdf) that defines our approach to learning and believe that eSims add value to e-learning courseware by creating exciting and meaningful material.

Creating interactive simulations (Jelsims) for e-learning programmes is easy with the JeLSIM software tools:
