Re: [MTC Global] Will Pokémon GO pave the way for more VR learning experiences?

Dear All,
This Is How Pokemon GO Is Defeating Autism

  • More and more autistic children are opening up to others while playing the game.
  • Little Ralphie is running around catching Pokemon in the playground. He begged his mom to come here after catching his first Pokemon at a bakery. He sees some other children in the park and starts jumping up and down yelling 'POKEMON!!' Others kids are responding too. Ralphie's mother is in tears because her autistic child is interacting with other children and making friends. All thanks to Pokemon GO.

  • Ralphie's mom wrote a Facebook note describing the experience. She was in shock when her son wanted to ditch his rigid schedule and play Pokemon GO.

  • "Talking to people. Verbalizing. Participating in speech. With total strangers. Looking up at them. Sometimes even in the eye. Laughing with them. Sharing something in common. This is AMAZING," she wrote. "MY AUTISTIC CHILD IS SOCIALIZING!"

  • Ralphie Koppelman is just one instance where a child with autism, thanks to the Pokemon GO game, is opening up and socializing with other people. Autistic children are talking to others and asking them for tips and tricks as well.

    "If a kid walks up to him and says 'Hey! Want to play a game with me?' he might squeal and flap his hands and shriek, and then want to run around in circles around them, laughing with excitement," his mother Lenore Koppelman told HuffPost.

Dear friends.

Kindly forward this message send by Col. Prabhakar Chitale, to your near and dear ones.

*************************************

 

Pokemon is not a laughing issue, it is a serious threat - not only to the individual who is playing that but also to the security system of our Country.

 

These kids are using the camera of their cellphones and picturising the surrounding landmarks. All these data is gathered in a gigantic server in Singapore and there are about 1800 people per shift monitoring that data round the clock. Thus they can see the land, roads, buildings, offices, residences, transport facilities, shops, malls (and many other things) without incurring any risk.

In short, by playing this game, you are sending the sensitive data to your enemy. Looking and managing this data, the enemy can easily formulate the mode and style of terrorist attack and device the escape routes too.

 

Do you remember - when Mumbai was attacked on 26/11, our xxx media was transmitting the live coverage of our commandos who were planning the attack and the bloody Pak attackers were getting the info about our soldiers and their planning.

 

I've spent 36 years in this field and I can sense danger just like ūüĎĆ snap of a finger.

 

It would worry you if I tell you the name of the company in SG and the nationalities of the people working there.?

 

So please be careful.

It's our Country .

Dear All,

This also brings us to the limitations of Pokemon Go.

  • Pokemon Go is a closed ecosystem. It can't communicate with other AR systems and interfaces simply because there aren't many.
  • Our smartphones can be used for many things, but they aren't designed to be AR devices ( hence causing accidents ).
  • AR transition to main stream market might happen sooner than we think and Pokemon Go will play a role in it, though not a pivotal role.
  • Microsoft's Hololense might take the lead, as opined by Jurica Dujmovic in Marketwatch

  • Companies looking to move into augmented and virtual realities (VR) are watching Pok√©mon Go intently.
  • SAP, which has expressed its belief in the importance of these technologies going forward, is among them.
  • "I believe very strongly," said SAP CEO Bill McDermott at SAPPHIRE NOW, "That intelligent applications" — such as AR, VR, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning — "will fundamentally change the way you do work in the enterprise and the way you collaborate with your trading partners."
  • SAP is also demonstrating that AR has applications beyond the world of gaming. SAP AR Warehouse Picker for instance, is a mobile app that leverages smart glasses to simplify warehouse operations. The app provides hands-free functionality that greatly reduces the time workers must spend interacting with handheld scanners and devices.

Pokémon Go is definitely setting the standard for augmented reality gaming, a niche that will only continue to grow.

  • But what will be most interesting to see going forward are the broader applications of AR and VR technologies across industries and the unique ways businesses find to monetize them.
  • Thanks to MTC_G for offering this platform, as a policy, to interface pro-actively with the Emerging Technologies.

Dear All,
The game's first ad partner is McDonald's. More than 2,500 McDonald's restaurants are now attracting players to play and order fast food. That's some foot traffic.

  • Businesses in earlier markets have already been leveraging the game's popularity with "lure modules," or in-app purchases. Brand tie-ins were launched almost immediately to create "retail theater," a potential boon for stores in environments like malls with declining foot traffic
  • But Go game developer Niantic has bigger plans for its runaway hit.
  • Companies will pay to be "sponsored locations" on maps that lead players from one Pok√©mon to another as they try to catch them. Game developer Nintendo has already done this with another game,  partnering with Duane Reade, Jamba Juice, and ZipCar. Partner companies are charged for every visit made by a gamer, and store locations as well as products will be inserted in the game in a way "that adds value to the game rather than detracts," according to one shareholder.
  • Pok√©mon Go seems to have done what other attempts at digital advertising have so far failed at almost completely—getting people to physically enter and spend money at brick-and-mortar locations.
  • App advertising simply hasn't taken off yet. Research from mobile analytics company AppsFlyer reveals some interesting numbers about global in-app spending. For example, only 5.2 percent of users make in-app purchases, and they spend relatively small amounts. North American users spend more than their counterparts in Europe and Asia.
  • Other apps are looking to innovate advertising technology to increase revenue. For example, social media photo-sharing service Snapchat recently filed a patent for technology that recognizes images in users' photos. One potential use-case is to link identified images with advertising—the patent filing includes the example of a shot of a cup of coffee triggering a coupon offer for a nearby cafe.
  • Foursquare president Steven Rosenblatt says that "location intelligence and real-world foot traffic data" is developing into a big market, and more companies will be looking to that technology to attract customers and their wallets.

Dear All,

  • Pok√©mon Go provides a needed example of how the digital and physical worlds might be able to coexist through mobile devices, though. While virtual reality requires a complete retreat from the surrounding physical world, augmented reality lives within it, potentially making it more attractive to a mainstream audience.
  • The smartphone ecosystem, whether it is social gaming or anything else, is so massive and accessible that you would be crazy not to try to create some sort of commercial entity using AR off the back of Pok√©mon Go
  • Creating AR experiences and integrating these into the game behavior of Pok√©mon Go, the possibilities for edutainment from pre-schooling to skill development as well as innovative business models for commercial marketers are endless.
  • Pok√©mon Go will have the Google advertising model and that means it can scale revenues very quickly, as it's so established among marketers. Nintendo will see this very much as a gaming phenomenon but Google will see it as a marketing phenomenon.
  • It may be a great thing to watch companies with solid brands and IP to start thinking about location-based games in new ways; specifically, when local cities, towns, destinations, markets, shops, restaurants and so on get involved.
  • It's hard to predict where this goes. But we are clearly seeing a social movement here in ways we had not before.

  • Pok√©mon GO is a reality mobile game developed by Niantic and published by The Pok√©mon Company as part of the Pok√©mon franchise. It is free and can be played on iOS and Androids, which opens a lot of doors for players everywhere.
  • Along with utilizing a smartphone's GPS chip, which encourages players to go outside and catch Pok√©mon characters around you, it also leverages augmented reality (AR) technology, so it looks like those fictional cartoon characters are really in the world around you when seen through the phone's camera lens.While Pok√©mon Go is the most popular app to use AR, the technology isn't new, and there are many mobile applications for it.

There's no getting past it: Pokémon GO is the biggest game in the world right now. It's a fully-fledged cultural phenomenon. Lately you can't venture outdoors without tripping over somebody who's absent-mindedly chasing after a wild Pidgy (a small bird type Pokémon that seems to pop up everywhere throughout the game), blissfully unaware of you, the outside world and the numerous hazards around them. Gazing into my crystal Poké Ball, I would speculate that Pokémon GO's unprecedented popularity will lead to the following:

+ The market getting flooded with imitators and further games built around an augmented reality (AR). Some of these games may struggle without a strong brand behind them. I expect there will be some major public opinion push back at this stage. Still, can you picture a Walking Dead AR game where the world around you is beset by zombies? What about a Marvel game, where you walking around performing heroic deeds?

+ There will be a wider uptake in virtual reality solutions. If augmented reality solutions are popular, why can't their more sophisticated sibling follow suit? There will also be a wider uptake of augmented and virtual reality solutions throughout the corporate world.

I'm particularly interested to see how learning and development folk utilise VR to create more engaging, transformative training experiences. Can you picture a world where you walk around your office space (or a safe space somewhere) collecting clues, earning power-ups and more, all whilst learning about a health and safety (or compliance, or new product training, etc.)?

I think the lesson to be learnt from Pokémon GO is as follows: if you build it and it's a) fun and b) easily accessible, people will flock to it. If L&D learns the right lessons from these first tentative steps into the world of augmented and virtual reality, the future could be very interesting indeed.

What's your take? Will the rise of Pokemon GO lead to better uptake of AR & VR experiences?

Mr. Mishe Fon,

Your posting is very brilliant. But you are reducing Northwest to one city - Bamenda. When you say Mr. Biya has visited Bamenda three times in more than 30 years. How many times has he visited Wum, Nkambe. That is the three main divisions in the days of Southern Cameroons. Again, the fault is that of northwest people who have reduced that great region (Province) to one small city, Bamenda. When the Nkambe man calls himself Bamenda man, the Wum man calls himself Bamenda man, that is minimizing the northwest. The Ring Road is not only in Bamenda. The Ring Road in the days of Southern Cameroons meant Bamenda - Nkambe - Wum and back to Bamenda. Are you saying the Wum person should concentrate development only in Bamenda. I am not against that. If that is your choice, who am I to suggest otherwise.

We , people of Bamenda extraction ought to be ashamed of our selves. Let us put our usual "Politics" aside for a few seconds and face our hard realities. Make we put Biya and Ndumu out of this langua bicos since becoming President some THIRTY something years ago, he has visited Bamenda THREE times (when he created the CPDM in 1982, then during the "I Do So Swear, I will build and supervise the Ring Road myself" four years later and eventually 25 years later during the so-called 50th anniversary of reunification). This historical data simply to highlight the fact that Bamenda has never and will never be at the top or bottom of their priorities.

Now, we Bamenda people have been screwed to the point of complacency and have stood by watching as the city slides into abject disgraceful squalor. At what point does an abused housewife say enough is enough? Where are the Political CPDM strange bed fellows, Intellectual and Business elites of Bamenda? I am talking about all those Big Time multi-millionaire Civil Engineering Contractors like (BUNS, TANO, JOE-CONERWATA, Ngwa, Babila etc; Heavy weight Architects like Fobi, Che, Mutah, Bongwa, Awudanga and many more. Are they not as outraged as you and I are at seeing the decrepit state Bamenda has been plunged into? Shall we just sit there like "moumous" and wait for a Government that will never and has no intention to work for its citizens? This is very un-Bamendrous.

In the United States alone out of the 29 to 32,000 Cameroonians (documented and undocumented, with or without US citizenship) about 12 thousand are from Bamenda. That is a fact.  If only FIVE Thousand agreed to help their community (as they do on individual uncoordinated basis) by coming together in a pool and devote just two weeks of their "Pay Check" (at least $1000.00 per family) into a Credit Union Account; would it not jump start the process of revitalizing some infrastructural projects in that city? Do the math.That is a whooping 5 million dollars. Look at what alumni students are doing for their alma mata with their own small contributions.
Once again, look at the images of your beloved city and give your opinion.

Re: [MTC Global] Fwd: ~ * MBA Is Getting Out Dated ? ~ For information.

Dear All,
Everything has to follow its time cycle!
The problem with MBA education is due to many factors.
1. There are more MBA colleges than vocational colleges (note that we have produce more skilled technicians than managers).
2. MBA education in India is not Industry oriented, many AICTE/UGC affiliated colleges teach more theoretical subjects than hands-on experience in the field.
3. Majority MBA graduates project are plagiarized-copy-paste culture. In Bangalore, many shops are selling Engineering/MBA projects!!
4. No skills- many MBA students are spoon fed by parents and professors. A person who was spoon fed can not become manager/leader.
5. Studying MBA is a trend. Many of them do not have interest/passion for management education (Vijendra Kumar S.K. & Ancy Mathew. Interest in Management Education: The Current Trend and its Implications.The International journal of Research in Commerce, IT and Management, Vol.2 (9), P.116-118).
A Case: Some years back, I met an MBA studying student. He was staying in hostel and could not adjust with room mates. he wanted my recommendation for getting single accommodation.  T refused to recommend and told him that if I have the authority, I wanted MBA students should stay in a dormitory, where they have to adjust with dozens of people and learn to 'manage' themselves!!( I bet that no student/ parents/management will agree for his son to be in a dormitory, they want luxury accommodation!).

1st August, 2016

Almost 80% of the students who are passing out of MBA/ PGDM universities, institutions & affiliated colleges look at MBA as BA or B Com or B Sc.

Devoid of Management knowledge & the implications of an MBA program, these students are lost. From Frederick Taylor to the industrial revolution to information age to the ongoing VUCA world, Management profession has witnessed a plethora of changes & got transformed now. 

In an organisation, a position may fall vacant for various reasons - an employee resigning or getting transferred or promoted or being sacked or for any other reason. It it is better not to fill up that position with a wrong hire. Or else, it affects the entire organisation.  

When a person is recruited for a position he or she is unsuitable, frustration sets in & it will rub off on colleagues, team members & demotivates the staff in the process.  This is what"s happening to the faculty, HOD, principals, Directors of Management colleges, which are declining in standards.So the top management will have a bigger problem to contend with the below par students.

Similarly, filling up the seats by indifferent students, reluctant students, those who could not get a seat elsewhere, govt sponsored students, reservation candidates, management quota students who want to enjoy & have a gala time - has diluted the PGDM/ MBA course.  

Why do we need students who do not value Management as a profession & only look at it as a certificate to land a 10 K job. Like GTU, there are hundreds of universities & institutions in similar state. 

All said & done, it is India which faced , suffered & absorbed many predators & onslaughts & still emerges as a Superpower of 2030.Nothing will happen overnight. Again, I caution the Faculty to watch out.

Your views expose us to the ground realities under the  Indian educational environment including MBA. And I,  based on my academic/industrial experience more than 45+ years in different states in various colleges,  strongly agree with your observations . We are in a  sinking boat!

Dear All,

My views are furnished below:

i. There is mismatch between demand and supply. The "Says Law " did not work here because the education Mafia or politicians build the institutes to make use of their unaccounted money. They consider this is the best tool for earning money.

2. The syllabus of MBA is hardly matching  with the industry requirements

3. The infrastructure is not at per with AICTE or UGC norms. Most of the cases inspecting officers are given wrong feed backs with the connivance of the Management

4. The teachers are recruited on contact basis

5. Hardly teachers, my personal view, up date themselves and run the PPT or teachers guide given by the publishers

6. The students also go by inter nets only.

7. Industry people are hardly recruited.

8. The Directors, in most of the cases, are  below the average and Management nominee. Thus,  their roles are  prejudiced.

9. Their other things which are known to all ie divide and rule policy which we inherited from British Legacy.

10. Highly qualified and industry based people will never be accepted by the Director and Management. The recruitment Board has to agree with the Management because almost all the colleges are unaided.

If my observations hurt any body's sentiments, I beg apology.

Dear Dr. R P Singh,
 
You have wonderfully pointed out the GAP (These so called MBAs carry paper certificates with hardly  any insights , skills and competencies to manage systems, processes or people.)
I completely agree with your thoughts and loved reading it again and again.

Dear all,
MBA as a subject of study is not loosing it's sheen, rather it has become a necessary degree to reach pinnacles of successes in most areas of organised activities. Good management graduates from good institutions are getting higher and higher average compensation every year. Most Engineers , many CAs , ICWAs, are rushing to acquire management degree to enhance their chances of reaching higher echelons of hierarchies.
However, the problem of MBA is it's more than required proliferation of below the  average so called management institutions, who impart substandard input through inefficient process to youngsters without any aptitude for management and leadership skills.
Many of them are virtually teaching shops to make money, in the garb of imparting education.
These so called MBAs carry paper certificates with hardly  any insights , skills and competencies to manage systems, processes or people.
That is giving the illusion of MBA  degree becoming outdated.
It is not, it will not.

The present sorry state of affairs of MBA is because of a simple reason that institutions have failed to create learning environment in the campuses that is joint responsibility of managements and teachers and both of them are engaged in blame game.

The present sorry state of affairs of MBA can be attributed to  lack of blend of academicians and  practitioners to teach the students. The students do not  get any exposure to  practicial insights, noon-use of case studies  as a  pedagogical tool, mushroom growth of institutions preying upon the innocent  students and paretnts.  The education is  viewed as  profitable venture,without focusing on quality of teaching and curriculum. 
the fast buck culture should give place to  enrichment of the programme  in tune with the market needs, and enlightened MBAs.  Teaching management skills should be the top priority of any professional programme.

I am reading and thinking on this issue since last 4-5 years and as a faculty of Business Management, i have one question to the system, Is is that there is no requirement of efficient managers in Corporate sector? there is, in fact there is dearth of efficient business professional, the reason behind declining trends in MBA is that it has not changed as per the requirements of corporate and still the delevery mode of  MBA degree is same as what it used to be in 80's. how these student will be able to match up with the dynamic challenges of todays corporate life when the input they got was just outdated. 
 
So if MBA is required to be revamped, it is the urgent need at the part of educationists to transform it with current business mechanism. then again MBA degree will regain its importance.

On hire: MBA graduates for Rs 10,000 per month

, Ahmedabad Mirror|

"There are no takers for MBA, it seems. Had I known the job scene would be so disappointing, I would have pursued BCom," said an applicant.
 
"There are no takers for MBA, it seems. Had I known the job scene would be so disappointing, I would have pursued BCom," said an applicant.
Master of Business Administration, which used to be a status symbol only two decades ago, has reduced itself to a 
poor man's degree if the salaries offered to fresh MBA grads at GTU are anything to go by. While around 62% MBA seats are vacant this year, employers are hiring MBA grads for as less as Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 and the varsities are not even letting out a whimper. Gujarat Technological University conducted a three-day placement for a finance company which made it clear beforehand that it would offer not more than Rs 1.44 lakh to Rs 1.80 lakh per annum to students from Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Vadodara and Surat. Rural students would be hired for Rs 1.20 lakh to Rs 1.44 lakh per annum by the company, according to the information put up on GTU website by the varsity's Integrated Training and Placement Cell (ITAP).

Around 300 students had participated in the recruitment interviews conducted by this company, according to GTU officials. These are the students who have paid between Rs 55,000 to Rs 1lakh to pursue the course. A student who participated in the placements that concluded on Tuesday said on condition of anonymity, "We passed out in April and have not been able to find a job yet. There are no takers for MBA, it seems. Had I known the job scene would be so disappointing, I would have pursued BCom. I frankly do not mind a salary of Rs 10,000 per month.

Something is better than nothing." ITAP Head Apurv Raval said, "In the threeday placement, 300 MBA graduates from across the state had participated. Around 30 were shortlisted. We make best efforts to ensure that the graduates get maximum salaries. However, in several cases the initial salary is less. Recently, Axis Security was on campus for placements and offered an annual package of Rs 1.50 lakh while engineers were offered Rs 3.6 lakh per annum by Wipro." However, Gujarat University Vice Chancellor M N Patel, is of the opinion that the varsity should put its foot down and fight for its students.

"There are 100 applicants for one job these days. Two to three years ago, the recruiting companies offered attractive packages, but now that is not the case. That said, GTU should learn to negotiate with the companies and get the best packages for its students rather than letting them down." He added, "Once you allow a company to pick your student for as less as Rs 1.80 lakh, then the next company would offer even less." Janak Khandwala, president, Association of SFI Professional Institutes said, "As far as MBA is concerned, GTU has not even designed the course properly.
It should ideally be case-study based and there should be more field work. Students who pursue the course should be able to meet the requirements of the industry. Besides, nowadays there is a huge demand-supply gap and that has led to the drop in salary packages." Not just MBA, even MCA (Master of Computer Application) has around 80 per cent seats vacant. In precise numbers, it means out of total 21,260 MBA, MCA and MCA (lateral) seats, only 4,389 have been filled while 16,871 are still vacant.

Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) has added that the number of vacant seats could be even higher as many candidates who have secured admission to MBA may opt for other courses. An ACPC official said, "There were totally 21,260 seats in MBA, MCA and MCA Lateral. Out of them, 16,871 are still vacant. In MBA course, 2,408 seats have been filled while 6,211are vacant; in MCA, only 538 seats have been filled while 4,521are vacant; and in MCA (lateral), 6,139 seats are vacant and only 1,443 seats are filled in." ACPC Member Secretary G P Vadodaria said, "The first round of seat allotment was done on Tuesday. Around 80 per cent seats are vacant in MBA, MCA and MCA (Lateral) courses. More seats could fall vacant in the coming days."

IMPORTANT DATES: MBA/MCA

July 26 to July 29 - Deposition of tuition fees in bank and online generation of admission slip July 27 to July 30 - Online cancellation of admission July 27 to July 30 - Consent of reshuffling, filling and alteration of choices (if any) in Round 2 August 4 - Commencement of academic term
