Why We Created a Virtual Learn-by-Doing Platform  

Knowing is not enough. There’s more to the learning continuum. To eliminate barriers to behavior change, learners need to to practice in real situations, in a safe environment, with expert coaching. Until now, practice was often omitted, or handled poorly in live events.  With AliveSim, you can create immersive practice with expert coaching at scale, with both consistency and metrics. 

Giving Learners the Missing Piece to Change Their Behavior

How performance is built from knowledge + practice + coaching

Deliberate Practice with Coaching Drives Optimum Performance

The knowledge your learners gain from training or in a class is at risk. It is of little value unless learners apply it – and soon, before they forget. Applying knowledge in real situations is a skill, and requires practice. Practicing in real situations incurs risk, and many learners do not feel confident to even try. AliveSim solves this problem.

Knowing is Not Enough to Impact Performance

Just as an athlete or musician must practice new skills to perform, so must your learner. What is the best way to practice? Trial-and-error is inefficient. Practice with expert coaching exponentially increases practice effectiveness.

Six Ways that AliveSim Builds Competence by Scaling Practice and Coaching


AliveSim cost-effectively scales practice and coaching. Unlike webinars and videos, this experience platform enables learners to learn by doing – the most effective way to master new skills.

Better Decisions

Learners practice how to apply processes, guidelines, best practices, and product knowledge in a safe environment, so that they are competent and confident in real-world situations.

Subject Matter Expertise

Your best experts can create realistic situations on the fly, and coach learners to recognize optimal patterns. AliveSim scales their expertise across your organization.

Close Performance Gaps

Identify the most common performance gaps and close them proactively, with virtual practice and coaching. This elevates the competency of all learners, without additional live coaching.


Standardized virtual modules provide consistent competency training across the organization (unlike live coaching), while delivering personalized coaching to each learner.

Unbiased Evaluations

Objective learning outcomes are measured across all learners, providing insight into overall competency, and showing specific areas where learners and teams needed the most coaching.

Working with Syandus

Syandus combines its sophisticated AliveSim platform with well-honed processes to deliver effective, engaging modules.

The Platform

It all starts with an innovative, stable, reliable platform.
Below are the three ways the AliveSim Platform creates exceptional experiences.

AliveSim produces customized virtual practice modules designed to overcome your learners’ specific performance gaps, in ways not possible before. There are endless content possibilities within carefully constructed templates for timely, cost-effective content creation. 

AliveSim rapidly deploys your modules via a centralized cloud service, to your learners’ web-enabled devices. Integrate AliveSim into your existing content delivery platforms for a seamless learner experience. Add more users over time.  Add or modify modules to meet changing needs.

AliveSim’s Analytics Portal measures learning outcomes. Learners can view their progress, and organizations can also view aggregated metrics across all performance gaps, plus other measures. The analytics portal is available 24/7 and can be setup to be accessed via your existing systems.

The Process

We use a well-honed process to translate your learning objectives into effective Virtual Practice Modules. Below is an outline of our four-step process.

Step 1: Identify performance gaps. We work with you to identify performance gaps and the situations where they occur.

Next, we define themed modules from these gaps, and determine how many modules are needed to cover your learning goals.  

Step 2: Building a Module. Each  module contains several interactive scenarios. Each scenario template includes the interactive flow of virtual conversations, decision logic, feedback, and coaching. Leads from your organization provide guidance as content is added to each working module.

Step 3: Final Approval & Deployment. Once the content is approved by your organization, the final polish and QA is completed in preparation for deployment within your organization.

Step 4: Utilization and Measurement. All data is reported within the AliveSim Analytics Portal.

Revising content is easy! Unlike video that is hard to change, or requires a re-shoot, our modules can be updated to meet evolving strategy. Unlike actors, our virtual humans are always ready and available to deliver new dialogue.
