What is SimQuest?

SimQuest is an authoring system for designing and creating simulation-based learning environments [10]. SimQuest is especially suitable for designing dynamic, interactive, highly motivational discovery learning environments. The learning process associated with simulations is discovery learning. SimQuest learning environments include simulations of a system (or a process) and instructional support for learners.

One of the main challenges for an author is to find a (new) balance between sufficient freedom for learners to regulate their own learning process and guidance of the discovery learning process. SimQuest provides the possibility for:
