Teach smarter, learn faster.

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

Learning is a feedback loop.

Shorten the loop with interactive challenges and decision making.

Tools to quickly create challenging simulations and scenarios that show the immediate impact of decisions.

Why Mazetec?

  • Collaborate with colleagues on content
  • Game mechanics to prompt pressure or strategy
  • Use it live with a group or individual activity/ exam
  • Works with Zoom, Teams, and other integrations

Teach and test simultaneously by challenging learners to use what they know to navigate simulations you design.

1. Create

Model your interactive scenario

Create or upload scenarios that mimic the challenges of real life dilemmas by connecting choices with consequences.

Gamify lessons with choices, points, and time. Build up pressures that can make real-life decisions more difficult - in just a few clicks.

  • 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 colleagues.
  • 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

Create Surveys and open-ended questions: capture follow-up contact info, create and compare Pre and Post Surveys, and open-ended questions for your experimental decision paths, e.g., 'Why did you choose that?' Insert your questions at any point into your maze using the Form node.

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.

2. Launch

Share and Distribute!

Played in a browser. People learn by faster making decisions and experiencing the consequences!

Learners navigate the problem scenario in their browser by making choices, critically thinking, and applying their knowledge to solve your scenario. Each decision a learner makes moves them forward in the scenario.

Accelerate learning with active learning. Learners make decisions under pressure and experiencing the consequences in a safe-environment. Mazetec simulates the feeling of learning under pressure.

Show impact value by assigning rewards and points to each decision.

  • Share as a link.
  • Embed or link on your website.
  • Integrate with your existing learning ecosystem.
  • Post to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, and Pinterest.

3. Discover
