Does it matter if I've used a Capsim simulation before?

We have created two divisions: Pro and Open. Pro division consists of any professors who have used a Capsim simulation in their class before, whereas the Open Division is for everyone who has not used a Capsim simulation.

Can my colleagues join my team?

We are only allowing one person teams. However, you can refer your colleagues for additional points. If you refer more than five colleagues you will receive a free course of CapsimCore licenses. Please read the official rules for more details.

Do referrals have to complete the challenge?

Yes, referrals must complete all six rounds of the CapsimCore Professor Challenge in order for you to receive bonus points (50pts per referral).

How long do I get to complete the challenge?

Every participant gets exactly 3 weeks to complete the challenge once their schedule is set up. The challenge runs from May 18 to July 31.
