There are two basic types of business simulations: online vs. download. Online business simulations are those that can be ran directly from your browser and anywhere there's a computer with an internet connection.
Download business simulations -- like those offered by LavaMind
-- have to be downloaded from a website to your computer. Sports Business Simulations and Forio Business Simulations offer online sims for the classroom. It's our contention that these simulations are more reliable and not depended on the kind of computer you have.
For example, some downloadable sims require that you have a Windows-based computer; if you own an Apple Mac, that presents a problem.
