Using the Demonstrations and Simulations

There are demonstrations and two types of simulations provided throughout the training to help you learn the skills you need.

Show Me Demonstrations

Throughout the training you will see the following text:

Learn How
Show me a demonstration about how to do this task.

Doing this Task

This type of demonstration shows you step-by-step how to complete a task using the software. Demonstrations contain audio and may require the use of headphones.

The bottom of the video window contains player controls which allow you to pause, play, and rewind the demonstration video. There is also a closed caption button which allows you to read the descriptions of the steps, rather than listen to them.

A transcript of the steps is available under each demonstration which can be printed.

Let Me Try Simulations

Throughout the training you will see the following text:

Let me try to complete this task on my own.

The simulation uses screenshots from the live HIFIS application and creates a realistic environment where you can practise the skills you have learned.

As you move through the simulation, you will be provided with data to enter and feedback on your progress.

If you are unsure how to proceed, press the hint button for help with next steps.

Doing this Task Simulation

This type of simulation lets you try to complete the task on your own, using a simulation of the software. You will be provided with instructions on how to complete the task and guided when you make a mistake. The simulations contain audio and may require the use of headphones.

Note: When you have finished entering information into text boxes in the simulation, you must press Enter to move on to the next step. If you use the Tab key rather than the mouse to go through the simulation, you must activate the text box by pressing the space bar or Enter before you can enter text.

The bottom of the video window contains player controls which allow you to pause, play, and rewind the demonstration video. There is also a closed caption button which allows you to read the descriptions of the steps, rather than listen to them.

A transcript of the steps is available under each simulation.

Practice Your Skills Simulations

These simulations appear in the Knowledge Check at the end of certain modules and courses with the following text:

Practice your skills in a simulation of the live HIFIS application.

As you move through the simulation, you will be provided with data to enter and minimal hints if you are unsure how to proceed.

In this simulation you will complete one task and then another.

Complete one Task and then Another.

This type of simulation lets you try to complete the task on your own using a simulation of the software. In most cases you are provided with a scenario to address. Hints are provided, but you are not guided through the task, as you are expected to know how to do it.

These simulations contain some audio and may require the use of headphones.

Note: When you have finished entering information into text boxes in the simulation, you must press Enter to move on to the next step. This is different from the live HIFIS software where you can use the Tab key to move from one field to another.

The bottom of the video window contains player controls which allow you to pause, play, and rewind the demonstration video. There is also a closed caption button which allows you to read the descriptions of the steps, rather than listen to them.

A transcript of the steps is available under each simulation.
