Since 2000,Innovative Learning Solutions, Inc. has been committed to developing innovative web-based simulations for business schools and business professionals around the world. Our main headquarters is located in Knoxville, Tennessee. However, we have a global distribution alliance with partners around the world from Colombia to Egypt to China to Slovakia. Our simulations have been translated from English to several other languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Lithuanian, and Korean.
Long before ILS was created, our key team members lead in field of educational computer simulations. The Marketplace business simulation was first created in the 1980s and has been refined over 25 years. In 2001, ILS released the first fully web-based business simulation that required no downloads or installation – which were then the norm. ILS was also the first to incorporate multimedia content and scenario videos into their online simulations in 2009. Marketplace and Marketplace Live were awarded with the Brandon-Hall Award for Excellence in E-Learning (2003) and the Brandon-Hall Award for Excellence in Technology (2009).
Our team continuously challenges the boundaries of how technology can enhance learning. We are committed to developing truly innovative learning tools that have the potential to transform education. We work with leading content experts in various areas of education and business to create multi-sensorial, experiential exercises that can be delivered via the web. Our goal is to help educators innovate the learning process to make it more interactive, engaging, and fun. We believe that hands-on, integrative learning in a competitive and simulated virtual environment greatly improves knowledge retention, fuels motivation, and breeds excitement among students.
We understand that today’s global online learning environment is not confined to classroom schedules and time zones. Therefore, we provide free 24/7 support for registered instructors. In addition, we offer regular support hours for students. Our team of support specialists have over 25 years of combined experience supporting ILS products. Twice a year, we host a free training event for current, future, and prospective instructors of our simulation products: Train-The-Trainers. Our competent marketing and sales staff will advise you on the best simulation to fit your needs. Personal tours, demos, free evaluation games, webinars, and instructor materials are just a few of the additional products and services ILS offers to assist instructors.
