University of Phoenix puts technology at learning’s forefront

A behind the scenes look at how University of Phoenix uses simulations:

"... the university’s online simulations ask students to make decisions based on information provided to them in the simulation and on the knowledge they’ve gained through reading assignments and group electronic discussions. Each simulation has several pages of background information on a potential problem, often includes software that analyzes the potential effects of a student’s decisions, and walks students through a discussion of their decisions."
