Leadership/Product Management tasks:

  • Leading development and research with Unity game engine to create Interactive content like Educational sims / serious games.
  • Engages in research, monitoring, and analysis of production and educational trends related to Gamification, 3D modeling/animation and dynamic/interactive digital media.
  • Exhibit high degree of Creative problem solving to convey difficult concepts in education like STEM and Trades.
  • Meeting with Instructors or Subject Matter experts (SME) for consulting/advisory, outline of project, deadlines, identifying risks, pragmatic scope, oral and written communication, doing pedagogical research, communicating technology to non-technical audiences.
  • Offer expertise in technology, tools & techniques, computer hardware used in education, while also solving product delivery issues.
  • Analysis of early adoption of technology (CHASM) using Verbal and written feedback, UX metrics like HEART Framework.
  • Analysis of client (SME/Instructor) needs via information gathering and converting them to functional needs of the product.
  • Identification of educational product creation opportunities within the institute to expand the product base.
