Our Mission

Founded in 2002, Muzzy Lane initially built custom learning solutions, drawing on the team’s background in designing and delivering award-winning simulations and games.

To do this at scale, we announced a new set of authoring tools in 2015. These tools helped our partners build their own simulations. Our goal is to get thousands of educators, instructional designers, and course developers building with Muzzy Lane.

We seek to replace static, linear content with dynamic, immersive content that allows learners to get inside the real life skills they need to master.

We recognize that learners need all of the help and encouragement they can get, and that in today’s increasingly virtual learning environment, access to teachers, mentors, and other supports may not always be available. Simulations created with Muzzy Lane add value to these resources, helping learners think critically to solve problems that don’t have simple right-or-wrong answers.

We believe in empowering teachers, not replacing them.

Jeff Fiske

“I had a great experience working with Muzzy Lane on the development of three simulations for our course HIS350: World War I. HIS350 is our most popular upper-level history course year after year and is also one of the most highly evaluated by students. It is a credit to their development process and the Author tool that the simulations have continued to run smoothly for each group of students in the course since 2016, even as we changed our LMS.”
