MagLab - An Intelligent Management Learning Environment

Rallis C. Papademetriou

Abstract

In this paper, the perceived difficulty for students learning purely through auditory and visual means, such as via the standard lecture format, is highlighted through a literature review of learning styles and methods, and a solution based upon interactive computer case-based learning is proposed through a new and continuously evolving simulation environment called Management Laboratory, or simply MagLab. The software was developed using the open-source, high-level scripting language Tcl/Tk and it was designed to run under both Unix/Linux and Windows. An insight into the characteristics of MagLab brings out its many capabilities and strong points of simplicity, user friendliness, intelligence and extensibility.
