A half day workshop combining both theory and practical sessions. You will learn about the various sensor systems and software available, as well as troubleshooting common problems. Practical sessions give plenty of opportunity to find out about using simulators in the teaching of both handling and foundation skills.

Workshop objectives

A half day workshop. By the end of the workshop each participant should have mastered the basics and be sufficiently familiar with using the software to use it in their own tower.


One theory and two practical sessions:

  • Using a simulator to teach foundation skills
  • Skill building for good method ringing

Course content

The workshop focuses on the use of Abel and how its video features can be used to teach ropesight, and its striking analysis tools can be used to help improve striking accuracy. There will also be the opportunity to try Virtual Belfry and Beltower.

The practical sessions start by covering teaching people how to ring accurate rounds and leading, and then takes them through a step by step approach to build bell control and listening skills. Exercises involving changing speed at handstroke and backstroke are practiced before doing this continuously to plain hunt and ring methods.


Designed for people with limited or no knowledge of simulators. Is open to anyone who is a competent ringer and interested in teaching with the assistance of a simulator.
