Abstract

Digital simulations and games constitute a distinct category of learning intervention that calls for a tailor-made instructional design approach. This article will provide some background for that claim. A brief summary of several well-known I.D. models is presented as well as typical simulation and game design models. These are then combined to form the new synergistic design process model that takes into consideration key features of all three design disciplines, resulting in a new model uniquely adapted for the design of instructional simulations and games. The paper concludes with some lessons learned from first-hand experience designing simulations and games for instructional purposes.
