Indeed a very inspirational and innovative use of Content and AV. This reminds me of the innovative use of Adventure themed content and displays used in MRI, X-Ray Machines and CT scanners for use with children to make their experience less scary and eventually improve diagnostics by getting a better picture and eventually better data! Design thinking approach it is!!

Comment on GPS to CTS!

Thank you @Kelly Smith, for giving this easy to understand roadmap, useful for anyone desirous of attaining their certification goals. A quick tip from me to all who are preparing for their CTS - do reach out to others who may be preparing for their certification for learning collaboratively, or even those already certified to learn from their experience of having gone through the whole process!

Thank you @Urmil Vaidhya We also have @Satish Villait who passed his CTS exam most recently from India - that too on a public "holi"day - a day no one in Mumbai would dare to venture out and return home without getting all colured ! Happy to hear your experience Satish, for benefit of others who might follow!

Replying to Monisha Devaiah

Nice read, Joe. Thanks for sharing! I recall that back in 2009, there was similar platform called Second Life- when things weren't really so 'virtual'. As part of a global marketing team,  we toyed with the idea of the platform replacing physical events to some extent with the sole intention to reduce costs and carbon footprint. Most people said, " looks interesting, but what do I do here? What is my avatar supposed to do? It can never replace the beauty and impact of a physical meeting, nah!".  The platform was just not ready as people were not ready to accept this shift.

However, Black Swan events like the pandemic has changed the course of how and where people meet. Will be interesting to see how this platform evolves and how the adoption takes off in the new normal. 

Here is an actual use case of a logo launch by a team of Indian Premier League!
