Abstract for: Creating Interactive Simulations Online with Forio Epicenter

Forio Epicenter provides templates that make it easy to produce an online simulation that works on both laptop computers and smartphones. Forio Epicenter allows you to create an interface so users can interact with your Vensim, Powersim, or Stella Pro model online. Forio Epicenter is both a tool to create a web interface to your system dynamics model and an online host for your simulation. Forio Epicenter provides the ability to easily host hundreds of classes or workshops with thousands of students, end-users, or corporate learners. During this workshop, we will start with an introduction to Epicenter and show a sample of interactive online models. Then we’ll divide the workshop into two parts. In the first part, we will teach you how to get your Vensim, Stella Pro, or Powersim model on Epicenter so it can be shared. In the second part, we’ll focus on creating a user interface for your model.
