Corona does not stop education

During the Coro­na pan­de­mic, semi­nars can only be held safe­ly vir­tual­ly. We have been sta­ging our simu­la­ti­on games in their new distance-lear­ning ver­si­on for almost a year now.

In March 2020, the Coro­na pan­de­mic chan­ged all our lives. In the first two weeks of March 2020, we as riva hos­ted our simu­la­ti­on games onsite for our cus­to­mers. With the start of the lock­down, this was sud­den­ly no lon­ger pos­si­ble and the plan­ned events had to be can­cel­led and postponed.

We at riva quick­ly made the decis­i­on to migra­te our semi­nars to a distance lear­ning model. As a first step, our chan­ge manage­ment simu­la­ti­on Sys­Teams Chan­ge could be held purely vir­tual­ly by the end of April. Sys­Teams Chan­ge Lead and the Iris Insu­rance Game fol­lo­wed in the ear­ly sum­mer of 2020. Sin­ce then, we have regu­lar­ly imple­men­ted our simu­la­ti­on games online for our customers.

In addi­ti­on to the simu­la­ti­on plat­form, we have also rede­si­gned and opti­mi­zed the didac­tics for the vir­tu­al envi­ron­ment. As in the face-to-face semi­nars, the focus in the distance lear­ning ver­si­on is also on “acti­ve lear­ning”. The tar­ge­ted use of diver­se col­la­bo­ra­ti­on and online methods lead to a real expe­ri­ence for the participants.

The over­whel­mingly posi­ti­ve feed­back from our par­ti­ci­pan­ts shows us that the decis­i­on to run our busi­ness games online was exact­ly right. We are plea­sed and proud to be able to con­duct our simu­lai­ton games with our cus­to­mers in the same high qua­li­ty as we are accus­to­med to, even in the cur­rent situa­ti­on. In par­ti­cu­lar, we are also gra­teful to our cus­to­mers for their trust and sup­port in the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of our products.
