PlaySys is a multidisciplinary studio that brings experience working in education and research in the field of innovative technologies for three dimensional, real-time and offline graphics and their implementation in the modern era businesses. In the rush to embrace the digital world, one risks forgetting that real people and not the machines are the end-users. In 2007 the research department at PlaySys
first started as a personal collaboration of Luca Deriu with different universities both in Italy and abroad. Adaptive learning technique became a strong point in approach to each course creation, considering both professional market requirements and students’ individual needs. In addition to university and professional high-school lectures and workshops, custom-made workplace education programmes
and on-job-training, PlaySys provides wide e-learning online lecturing possibilities that evolve to keep pace with students’ changing learning habits. Beyond the standard educational technologies, PlaySys actively invests in the innovative research on the interactive digital media and augmented reality, establishing strong partnerships with major software development corporations, public institutions, and professional conferences.

WORKSHOPS AND PUBLIC TALKS
Luca Deriu, founder and R&D Engineer of PlaySys, participates to business and innovation events as a speaker and PlaySys’ frontman. We had a presence at ViewConference for four years with technical masterclasses on UDK, Unity, and V-Ray. We participated to Programmatic Day to talk about Virtual Reality possibilities, Big Data Analysis, and Programmatic Advertising opportunities.
REGULAR COURSES IN UNIVERSITIES AND SCHOOLS
Since 2007, we are involved in academic programmes in various universities, high-schools and professional institutes. Luca Deriu and various PlaySys employees are involved in lectures as a way to share the professional deep results of our research and development works. For eight years we had lectures at NABA Milano, since 2011 we are doing master classes at Scuola Politecnica di Design, Milano. We had lectures at SataEdu and Metropolia University of Applied Science, both in Finland. We also had few experiences in some high-school in Como area.
MADE-TO-MEASURE COURSES FOR COMPANIES
Beside academic relationships and event speeches, we also have lectures inside companies where we focus on a narrow subject to maximize the learning result. Our students are employees who already know the subject but needs to refresh their skill set. Among the various companies where we organized lectures we proudly can mention Valsir SpA and ForumNet SpA, both world-famous Italian corporates.

The methodological approach sharpens the students’ logic, teaches to work in a team, strengthens organizational and planning skills and creates an artistic and technological educational environment to focus on one of the most important contemporary interactive media.
