    Simulations and Games
    Using simulation games, learners can explore real-world scenarios in a safe environment. Simulation try, simulation watch, simulation evaluate, and simulation play are examples of simulation game scenarios that can help students learn. It is critical to establish a theme for your game in order to bring balance between the tone, visuals, audio, video, text, and other elements involved in its development. In addition, learners should be presented with a variety of challenges of varying levels of difficulty. Finally, you should consider how to manage interactions in simulations and games. There are three common ways: Variables, Triggers, and Conditions. Learning through simulation games could help learners to comprehend new concepts and then apply what they learn in a safe and controlled environment
