SimsUshare Mutual Aid
SimsUshare Mutual Aid allows subscribers to easily share training simulations and tactical evaluation sheets. Imagine hundreds of free simulations at your fingertips created by fellow sim developers all over the world. These simulations bring together the collective training knowledge and experience of experts in their fields. Do you have simulations to contribute, to help other users and demonstrate your work? Why create a simulation from scratch if it already exists, is easily accessible, and can be edited according to your needs locally? SimsUshare’s Mutual Aid opens the door to new ideas and collaboration on training projects.
When you open the CTC, you will notice a new tab called “Mutual Aid”. Click on this tab to open a large gallery of simulations and tactical evaluation sheets that can be filtered by category or key word (see #4, #5, and #6 in image on the right). You can click on any simulation (#1 in image) that interests you to preview it, click #2 to ‘Show Details’ about the sim, or click on #3 (‘Import Sim’) to add it to your account. Once added to your account, you can use it or edit it as you wish.
Help Others by Contributing Your Sim(s) and Evaluations!
Why not pay it forward by contributing a few of your sims and evaluation sheets?
Contributing only takes a minute and you are helping the community enormously. To contribute your sim, go to the Simulations tab and click on the sim you want to contribute, then press “Contribute Sim to Mutual Aid” (see image on the right). A pop-up windows appears (shown below that image) in which you fill out information about your sim. When you are done, make sure to read the hyperlink (essentially only share sims you have created or modified, with pictures you have the right to use) and click the box to “I agree to terms and conditions”. Your sim will be added to the gallery — and you will gain the respect and gratitude of your fellow instructors!
Submitting evaluation sheets is just as simple but they are located in the Exercises tab. Just to note, our team periodically reviews the contributed sims for quality control, so we may make a few tweaks for consistency. If you spot anything amiss, please let us know!
