Resource description

WHAT IS IT? The InTeLS Game is based on the scenario of a small company that wants to start exporting. The objective of the game is to educate/teach the player about the various issues associated with international trade in a context which is true to life when running a business. The game compliments the e-InTeLS course and the InTeLS knowledge Base by helping learners to identify areas where they may have a lack of knowledge in a particular subject. WHO IS IT FOR? This game together with the elearning course aims to improve access to international trade training for staff & managers in European SMEs who are unable to attend classroom based learning due to lack of financial resources or time/geographical constraints. The main aim is to improve skills in international trade for a wide range of SMEs. It will be achieved by developing a suite of e-learning training materials meant to access and acquire the skills to import/export markets. The goal is to improve profitability of an SME and implement the measures needed to start trading internationally. HOW DOES IT WORK? The objective for the player is to make key critical decisions within the game in order to trade successfully internationally. The player goes through various stages/options which are chosen to highlight a range of international trade related subjects. The game is lasts approximately an hour, but can be paused at any point and returned to. Games can also be replayed depending on what decisions you make within the game. The game compliments the e-InTeLS course and the InTeLS knowledge Base by helping learners to identify areas where they may have a lack of knowledge in a particular subject. Having identified the 'lack of knowledge' subject, they will then have the ability to find the relevant subject material (through the course or the knowledge base) in a traditional e-Learning format. The great thing about the game is that the player will be able to play it repetitively (through-out their learning phase) and test their new found knowledge in the context of the game. This On-line website course is based on a structured set of materials presented in a modular format. It covers the range of international trade practices and procedures and is based on the successful UK government "Passport to Export" scheme. The InTeLS Course is free to use during duration of EC funding and will subsequently be made "free at the point of use" to all qualifying organisations. The InTeLS Course is the fastest way to prepare individuals and companies for international trading. With its web-based format it allows access to materials from any internet enabled computer.
