For the past few years we have been fortunate to work with a great team at University of Melbourne and RMIT to create some management accounting simulations, which are now used worldwide by thousands of students.
Kilgors is a Balanced Scorecard Simulation, co-authored by Albie Brooks (University of Melbourne), Gillian Vesty (RMIT University) and Sarah Tesar (formerly University of Melbourne) and developed by Oztron Media with funding from the Faculty of Business and Economics and Department of Accounting at the University of Melbourne.
This case focuses on the Wine Division of Kilgors.
The case is a digital-based simulation which allows students to develop a balanced scorecard for the Wine Division based on a diverse set of information and background.
Students are then presented with three different scenarios, driven by internal and/or external events, and are asked to make decisions as they see the best course of action for the Division.
The causal impact of the student’s decision is reflected in the scorecard development.
A series of reflections and discussion points are inserted throughout the simulation, which enables students the opportunity to question their decisions.
The simulation is framed with the objective of providing an interactive classroom experience.
Kilgors uses interviews, commentaries and winery footage and is structured using gaming technologies.

Over the past few months we have been developing a product called Bluetour which creates self-guided tours using both GPS and Bluetooth technologies.
Bluetour is ideal for self-guided tours of all types including;
- Nature trails
- Tourist trails
- City tours
- Historical tours
- Parks & garden tours
- Zoo tours
- Driving tours
- Global tours
Bluetour allows users to experience the real world enhanced by digital media.
