Simentor® Simulations

Simentor®, ATG's flagship product, is a proven and patented simulation-based e-learning tool. It targets "soft skills," or the abilities and personal qualities needed to succeed across all occupations and industries.

Simentor® allows learners to acquire and practice important soft skills in an immersive "real-world" setting. Nearly any process or situation that involves interacting with others can be effectively simulated using Simentor®. These include external interactions such as sales, customer service, and vendor management, as well as internal interactions that take place upward, downward, laterally, and cross-functionally within an organization.

Slide 1
Learners interact with simulated characters in realistic scenarios focusing on soft skills. Importantly, characters respond with visual cues, voiceover, and onscreen text to reinforce subtle learning points.
Slide 2
Learners can be presented with a variety of background information and takeaway materials to assist them in performing well -- both within the learning module and in "real-life" situations.
Slide 3
Learners can be provided with opportunities to check their understanding in key areas, with useful and constructive feedback provided by a friendly virtual mentor.
Slide 4
Simulation authors have a great deal of flexibility as to how the modules are structured and displayed, allowing them to design for maximum engagement and effectiveness.

ATG simulations provide a depth and breadth of information, with a focus on actionable strategies for attitude and behavior change. They also offer valuable opportunities to practice targeted skills during interactions with on-screen characters. These realistic, context-specific role-plays mirror situations and challenges that learners will face on the job, equipping them to generalize their skills to the workplace.

Simentor® provides instant visual cues reflecting the on-screen character's approval, disapproval, or neutrality through facial expression, body language, and tone of voice. This affective response provides feedback as to the appropriateness of the learner’s choice of dialog.

This is reinforced by a friendly virtual mentor, who pleasantly explains why the learner's selection produced the positive, negative, or neutral reaction that he or she received from the character.

Simentor®'s unique combination of simulation and mentoring support enhances a learner's knowledge and performance in a self-directed, reinforcing, and cost-effective way. Employers and service providers who have implemented ATG's simulations, as well as the learners themselves, consistently praise their level of realism, engagement, and effectiveness. Below is an overview of Simentor®'s benefits from both perspectives.
