What is Nate Helix?
Nate Helix is an Online Course Website that aims to share quality lessons for small groups such as OFW or Overseas Filipino Workers, individuals who are interested to learn new skills, and students who want to develop abilities in the field of arts, design, and technology. The technology stated above related to web programming languages regularly practiced in the internet industry.
The how-to or tutorials that utilize graphic designs for marketing perspective, production of videos for advertising, and for content creations before the application of SEO or Search Engine Optimization. That includes Education Games that are engaged in by the instructors to share specific expertise for students, which are not accepted in some minorities due to the general negative stigma, “Time-Killer” or “Waste of Time”.
Although the rise of simulation games is wide-spread around the world, educational games such as Minecraft, a non-competitive game promotes academic knowledge and values in the foundation of learning.
Many people and kids nowadays spend their time endlessly playing well-known games today, such as MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena), fighting, shooting, and gambling. With the negative feedback and psychological effect resulting from long hours of playing, kids and adults suffer from addiction, violent behaviors, and most of all, unable to cope with stable living due to a wasted investment of time on digital entertainment.
On the other hand, Educational Games are far more valuable and beneficial because these programs are meant to give out lots of valuable information that the students can apply in their daily lives and even for the future. Most of all, this software does not advocate violence, unnecessary mature languages, and obvious “time-killers”.
