The MediaSpark-GoVenture Team will contact you if you are required to create a new account.
This update provides instructors with the benefit of accessing multiple GoVenture programs through one common dashboard.

Shared Simulation Scenarios

Simulation scenarios that are available to play will be marked with a yellow banner that says SHARED SCENARIOS. The only option available with these scenarios is to COPY them. Once you copy a scenario, you can play it with your students— a unique Simulation Number will be generated.
There is no limit on how many times you can copy and play each scenario.

Simulation Number

For Instructors who are directed to create new accounts (Learner-Managed Account)
Individual Play When you want students to play a simulation individually (not in teams) give all students the same Simulation Number to join and play. Your Player roster will build automatically as students join your Simulation (you do not have to enter student names or create logins).
Team Play — When you want students to play a simulation in teams (not individually) you must generate a unique Simulation Number for each Team (click EDIT > TEAMS then click the + button). The Simulation Number is 6 digits followed by a dash and two digit team suffix:
123456-01 (team 1)
123456-02 (team 2)
Give one unique Simulation Number to each Team.
For Instructors who have not had account changes (Instructor-Managed Accounts)
No change with how Simulation Numbers work. You create student logins and give the same Simulation Number to all students or teams you want to play and direct them to log in at
