To create scenarios you will have to go either to the Manage Scenarios or Run Session screen. It is recommended that you search first to verify that the scenario you're creating hasn't already been created.
When you're ready to begin creating a new scenario click the "New Scenario" button.
To begin creating a new scenario you'll have to fill out some basic fields first:
- Complexity Level
- Make Scenario Private *other organizations won't be able to see your scenarios if marked private
When you are finished entering your criteria, click Save to put your selections into the system.
Your scenario has now been created, and you can begin adding content. To add content, find your scenario on the list and click the gear icon on the right-hand side of the screen and select Build & Preview.
Each scenario in SimCore will have tabs for each content section.
1. To save yourself some time, you can import data from an existing scenario into another one. This will allow you to save time by replicating information that carries over from one scenario to another.
2. Add/Edit information for a given category
3. Edit specific line items within a given tab
Progression & Equipment
- Case Progression
- Learning Objectives
- Critical Actions
- List of Equipment
Labs are organized by category and can be displayed all at once, or as separate menu items.
Chart and Media
You can free type Chart Text in this section if you'd like, or add media. Media will have to be uploaded in SimCore prior to making a selection. Use the following link to learn how to add media into SimCore - Adding Media
Learner assessments will be entered in this section. Assessments can be done as either:
- Yes/No Choice
- Likert Scale
- Time Evaluation
In addition, when creating the assessments you have the ability to organize them by section. You can add as many questions as you'd like to each section, using the blue plus button (1). To create a new section within the assessment, click the blue cross at the bottom of your screen (2).
The feedback form is where your learners have the chance to assess the instructor and/or simulation itself. There is a default feedback that populates, but this may be customized as well. This is a great place to utilize the "Load values from another scenario" field mentioned earlier in this article, therefore making this a much quicker process.
To begin editing the form, select the edit pencil on the right-hand side of the screen.
With each question you enter, you will have the choice of what the question is related to (1), the instructor or the scenario, and how many radio buttons should be available to choose from (2).
Relevant handouts can be uploaded or copied into this section.
You begin with the option to input a title and didactics, but you have the option to upload media via the media library as well.
The following information will go in the Resources section:
Equipment - Select all equipment being used in the Scenario using the drop-down menu. In addition input the total dollar amount for all disposables that will be used during the scenario.
Personnel - Input the number of Non-Instructor Technicians and Non-Instructor Confederates
Space - Input the number of required rooms for the scenario
Time - Indicate how much time you'll need for setup and takedown as well who will be doing the setup and takedown by position type. Also, you have a timer here for time tracking during live sessions.
