Learn more about the Microcre simulation!


Microcore, a virtualized case-study simulation, offers students the opportunity to participate in meaningful work experiences. These experiences are designed to give students an accurate look into the dynamics and expectations of professional communication.

Built by a collaborative effort between BYU’s English and IT departments, Microcore is a fictional medical tech firm which “hires” students as interns. Over the course of their internship, students will acquire professional communication skills through completing assignments identical to those that will be expected from them in their future careers, such as proposals and press releases.

The Microcore simulation focuses on creating an authentic experience that is also engaging and fun. Interesting characters and an interesting story arc help keep students engaged with the content they are learning. The web interface keeps things streamlined and organized while adding to the immersive nature of the simulation.

Through this simulated case-study, students will learn the genres of professional communication as well as become familiar with the different modes of learning that take place outside a classroom.
