LegSim is a web-based virtual legislature. It is not a game, but a rule-based simulation in which students are the legislators. Students study the rules and organize the legislature, craft the policy proposals and decide which will be enacted into law.
LegSim makes politics personal. For instructors, LegSim reduces the startup costs of incorporating a simulation into a course and makes it easy to track student participation and evaluate performance.
Audience: Students in American Government courses at the college, university and high school levels.
