We are building a collection of apps powered by live market data that enable students to apply the concepts they are learning in the classroom/textbook in a real world setting using the same tools as practitioners - specific to courses dealing with the financial markets. These tools will be used in a variety of ways including classroom demonstrations, class projects, trading lab tools, self-directed learning, and intern/entry-level job recruiting, and intern/entry-level job training.
StockLinkU's comprehensive real-time web-based trading and portfolio simulator was officially launched in late 2013. The simulator goes beyond live simulated trading to provide students with an institutional-quality portfolio management system to use to manage their portfolios. The platform is also fully equipped with a built-in learning management system to enable instructors to track, manage, and assess students.
