Simulation authoring tools are at the heart of the next generation of e-learning courseware development products. Theyenable the creation of interactive, rich-media simulations which have the potential to engage the user in immersive,experiential learning. Authors can use these tools as a new means of expression, while users will benefit from theopportunity to interact with applications and practise at the same time. This paper presents an overview of simulationsfor e-learning, reviewing the authoring tools currently available, and focusing on one product, Qarbon’s ViewletBuilder,with particular application to academia.
