What Is Mursion?

Mursion is a live virtual simulation environment that allows training and practice for individuals preparing to enter the workforce or those who are already in it.  The program was developed at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in 2015, originally under the name TeachLive, as a practice/learning tool for those seeking a career in the field of education.  After being licensed and rebranded as Mursion, a wider range of simulations were developed, encompassing areas such a customer service and marketing, though education still remains the most prominently used of the simulated experiences.  Today, participants have a variety of simulations, scenarios, and avatars to choose from, designed to both challenge and improve their communications skills, critical thinking, and conflict-resolution and leadership skills.

How Does It Work?

Simulations engage participants in life-like, believable scenario in real time. Depending on the scenario chosen, participants can engage with adult avatars, children, or both at the same time in a proctored session. Scenarios cover several categories, including customer service training, human resources training, and teacher or educator leadership preparation to name a few. Engaging with artificial intelligence in a real world setting allows participants to make and learn from mistakes before entering the job force.

What Exactly Is A Scenario?

A scenario is the situation that defines the simulation and its objectives. It is designed by you, the client, and a Mursion Simulation Specialist. The scenario determines the background content for a desired simulation and what challenges will be put in place to test the participant. Essentially, a scenario is the instruction manual for the desired simulation, and may revolve around such subjects as education, hospitality, social work, and business to name just a few. It is also possible to create custom scenarios.
