A set of integrated educational simulators supporting teaching and learning of computer architecture concepts at degree level have been used to engage students and enhance their understanding of modern computer system architecture. Examples of practical exercises using an integrated set of simulations are described and a methodology for evaluating the educational value of the simulations is explained. The results are presented and it is noted that the statistical analysis of the results provided some support for the positive educational value of the simulations.
