NEWS FLASH // New! Microsimulations
What are the Microsimulations?
Microsimulations are optional skill-and-drill exercises that students can use within a Marketplace® Live Simulation. Each exercise takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
What is the purpose of the Microsimulations?
Over the years, we have seen that students using our simulations have difficulty mastering critical business skills such as customer value creation, resource management, evidence-based decision-making, operations management, and strategic thinking. To address these difficult business issues, we are creating a series of Microsimulations that will allow your students to explore these difficult business concepts at a more fundamental level.

NEWS FLASH // Marketplace Simulation Translations
Both Marketplace and Marketplace Live have been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Lithuanian, and Korean. Our global partners have translated numerous levels of the simulations.
Translating the Marketplace and Marketplace Live simulations are an important priority to Innovative Learning Solutions and its global distributors. However, the task of translating from English to other languages has provided a unique set of challenges. There are many dialectical and regional variations in languages. Standardizing the translation has proven to be a complicated venture, especially when there are differences in regional interpretation.
