There have been many discussions and debates as to whether  online gaming is good or bad . Some believe that online gaming increases aggression and addiction. Some research even shows that online games may have an effect on social development, self-esteem, social inadequacy, and social anxiety. However, it has also been established that it depends on the number of hours you put in. Gaming is only good when in moderation – up to 10 hours per week.

Online multi-player games involve thousands of players playing together as a team.  As gamers team together to complete missions within the game, teamwork concepts such as communication skills, leadership, coordination, negotiation and other similar qualities come to the fore.

The use of technology to improve the design and content of games such that it engages students productively and make the learning process meaningful. This annual event serves a platform for gamers to showcase talent and skills in gaming activities. RISE 2017 handpicks games thats are of interest to undergraduates and holds some learning experience to the students.

Selfie‘ is a craze and social networks are full of selfies of friends, relatives. Brands are fast cashing in this craze and these days incorporate it in their campaigning efforts. Love them or hate them, selfies are here for now!
