Problem-based learning

Mimic the challenges of real life dilemmas through gamification

Dear reader,

We built Mazetec to create interactive problem-based scenarios to show why your content matters.

Immerse your students in a challenging, real-world situation designed to uncover gaps in their understanding and reaffirm their learning.

Show students the immediate impact of their decisions through engaging role-plays and real-world simulations that you design.

When you build interactive role-play scenarios with branching outcomes, your students see the immediate impact of their decisions. They’re challenged to practice their knowledge on scenarios you design, so that they take away as much as possible from your course.

As instructors, we know the best learning comes from experience.

"Adding Mazetec simulations to our Thinkific course offered enormous benefits.

First, we created an applied learning roleplay, linked inside a Thinkific lesson, that let our students experience a scenario that was incredibly close to a real-life roleplay. Second, Mazetec’s advanced reporting and data collection tools created even more opportunities for sophisticated statistical analysis."
Paul Quinnett, CEO

QPR Institute, Inc

“We've integrated Mazes into all of our trainings. The response we received from our users is AMAZING. Our Mazes only make up 2% of our courses, but they are consistently rated the NUMBER ONE BEST PART of our online self-guided courses. We've built over 100 Mazes now. They are a FANTASTIC COMPLEMENT to our trainings!”

When asked, students consistently ask for more problem-based role-play scenarios.

Model your interactive simulation!

Challenge students with problem-based scenarios and immediate impact of decisions. Show why decisions matter, by putting the learner in a real-world situation to practice new skills or reflect their knowledge gaps. 

Branch decisions - "right" and "wrong" decision paths.
Consequences - Link to pitfalls, hints, and warnings.
Surveys - Capture feedback with Surveys.

Gamify your problem scenario!

Start the learner with $100 and subtract $10 for each wrong decision and add $10 for each right decision.
Create a race against the clock by limiting the time! Subtract time for poor decisions and add time for good decisions.
Compete with friends in presentation mode or become a game master and control your scenario.
