The general aim of the SIMPLE platform is to enable staff and students to manage the educational and organizational issues that arise from the implementation of this environment, in particular those of: personalized learning in a professional environment; social presence and collaborative learning; use of simulation spaces in programmes of study, and the relation between simulation spaces and other learning spaces on a programme, including paper-based and online resources, face-to face classes, and administration; use of rich media in online simulations – video, graphics, text, comms., etc; authenticity in the design of simulation tasks, and effective assessment of professional learning.
