Quick Look: Creating Choice-Based Simulations with PathFinder
CoursePlus Quick Looks is a series of video-based posts that demonstrate some of the intermediate to advanced features of CoursePlus. The videos assume a basic level of knowledge with CoursePlus (signing in, setting up a site, adding files to the Online Library).
Students can’t always experience everything they need to know in a class due to safety, financial, or capacity issues. PathFinder is a tool unique to CoursePlus that allows you to set up choice-based simulations of real-world events for your students to work through. In this installment in the Quick Look series, we look at what PathFinder is, how it works, and how you can build complex branching and choices and combine those choices with rich context (text, audio, video) to create an impactful and unique learning experience for your students.
