What's in a game? Often, a learning tool

What do simulations and games have in common? Surprisingly, just about everything. The methods used to create both are much the same; the underlying technology is identical.

But games are fun. That makes them an excellent learning tool. If you're a professional trainer, educator, development team leader, or corporate decision-maker, this book will help you understand and use games and simulations to educate and explain. Filled with examples, it shows you how to create and maintain different types of simulations using computerized techniques—without becoming a programmer.
