Engaging stakeholders particularly student in iCGPA adoption through conventional physical seminar or face to face meeting may not an effective approach to reach total inclusive engagement within short time. Furthermore, it is costly to perform impact assessment on such approach timely and almost impossible to be implemented for real time monitoring and decision making. This paper discusses an alternative approach to engage students on iCGPA adoption by using digital simulation approach. We used a common spreadsheet application (Microsoft Excel 2016) as a tool to develop the simulation. The rationale is, all Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) students have access to download a free original Office 365 suite through Malaysia Ministry of Higher Education subscription. The result is, we manage to automate the calculation of iCGPA values based on the calculation model adopted by UMP and visualize the performance on each program learning outcomes with spider web or radar chart. The tools also capable to visualize interactively the area of improvement based on the minimum score weight set by the use. At this stage, we have not yet test the tool in campus wide implementation but rather than tested in small scale class level. We received positive feedbacks from student where the tool seems can be used as an effective application to simulate and engage students in iCGPA adoption at UMP. We are in planning to further develop the tool to be implemented in online environment with analytics mechanism.
