We understand you may need your peers, other faculty members, and/or facilitators, to have control of PCS or view the simulations’ archives. There is an easy way to share your simulator's control with your peers by creating their individual login. Sharing the simulator always grants full access and control, and to its complete simulation archive.

Sharing the simulator control is for facilitators, faculty, and colleagues. Do not use this option for sharing simulator access with learners.

Use the Simulator Key for learner access to run sessions on your simulator.

PCS ownership can be managed (by current owners) in the Simulator Settings: gear icon next to the name of the sim in the list, Sharing tab.

Enter the email address of the colleague you wish to grant access to your simulator, and click "Add User".

All users with access to this simulator are also displayed on this page, in the "Shared with:" section indicating the simulator is shared with them.

Once a new user is added, they will receive an email letting them know PCS has been shared with them, and the steps to set up their login. They will be able to create their personal password to use with their email when logging in at

Note: Each PCS simulator has its unique access path and sharing generates an individual path for every user added. If you have multiple PCS simulators, your faculty will be able to see the simulator(s) and data archive(s) for their shared units.

If you need to revoke access to (any) PCS simulator, simply click the gear icon and remove the user's email address (by clicking the 'X).

When their email is removed, PCS is no longer shared with them; thus, they are no longer able to see or control the simulator, access archives, and content.
