NASSG Core Objectives• Founded a couple of months ago• To create awareness about the potential of serious games and simulations to help solve large scale learning and training challenges• To create and facilitate a community of stakeholders actively engaged in raising awareness and extending the state of art• To promote programs that build talent in this space• To provide a mechanism to formally interact, both within the community and across communities, nationally and internationally
State of Art• There is interest in all modes of serious gaming and simulation based training• However, there is a deep lack of appreciation of what these modes of learning can provide• Industry is not too developed yet, however we can see a change happening• A few select very high end companies are starting to lead the change and are bringing in cutting edge special expertise• Investments in the Serious Gaming industry have started to look up• Our hope that associations like NASSG can play a pivotal role • Especially in persuading the government to look at building scalable and effective mechanisms from authoring to deployment
