Teach smarter, learn faster.

Visually create engaging problem-based learning games, that are playable in a browser.

1. Create

Model your interactive scenario

Create scenarios that mimic the challenges of real life dilemma or the workplace by connecting choices and consequences.

Mazetec is grounded in active learning strategies such as scenario-based learning (SBL), problem-based learning (PBL), and gamification.

Gamify tensions, distractions and uneven issues that build up pressures that can make real-life decisions more difficult - in just a few clicks.

  • Simulate - real-world situations as playable decision trees.
  • PowerPoint - Jump start your scenario with a PowerPoint.
  • Branch decisions - "right" and "wrong" decision paths.
  • Consequences - Link to pitfalls, hints, and warnings.
  • Gamify - Define time and decision point values.
  • Collaborate - invite and build with colleages.
  • Surveys - Capture feedback with Surveys.

Build your scenario by linking different node types

Scene node

Move the story forward, set the scene and branch choices to other nodes. Connect choices to scenes and consequences to build your scenario. Link to other types of nodes.

Form node

Add pre/post surveys and open-ended questions to collect feedback or demographic data during play. Optionally, pause the timer so the user isn’t rushed and connect the next node. Create Forms or Surveys in the Forms editor.

Fail node

Some choices are unacceptable or fatal, route them to the Fail node. Reaching a Fail node ends play as incomplete and presents the option to start over. A scenario can have none or many Fail nodes.

Hint node

Offer a hint and return them to the previous scene to make a better choice during play. Optionally, pause the timer (if enabled) to give time for reflection.

Warning node

Poor choices have consequences. Connect poor choices to a warning during play, displays a message and sends the user back to the previous scene. Make it feel real and heighten the experience. Enable the timer or game credits and issue a penalty that impacts time or credits.

Finish node

A successful pass ending to a scenario. Reaching a Finish node will end a players session. A scenario can have one or many Finish nodes.
