What is HyLearn

HyLearn is a knowledge portal and has different features under the subheading of HyIntellect, HyDocument and HyAcademy

 

HyDocument

This is a document sharing portal where all the document and programs relevant to the industry will be uploaded by the web and its users. The documents will be available as freeware or shareware or copyright document depending on the proprietor’s choice. Most of the time professionals are at a loss as they are not able to get the required knowledge in a documented form. This includes procedures, programs, formats, specifications. Once such a data base is available then HyProfessional can take their achievements to greater height.

 

HyIntellect

Each and every individual in the corporate hierarchy has something to contribute. However more often than not such a contribution is not documented and is lost as the time passes by. The maximum an entrepreneur may get is some verbal accolade which too is lost in memory. Under HyIntellect the HyUser may be able to document his creative work and post it under his creation. This creation will be permanently attached to his identity. No individual or the creation is small to document. For example

·        A second mate working at his rank for a long time may develop passage planning skills related documents which are unique.

·        A chief offices may have developed a unique way of cargo handling

·        A master / pilot may have mastered a novel way of navigation

·        An Office staff may through his long service in his capacity, may have developed a data base and statistic which may be of great value to the industry.

·        We have given some very basic examples and these are just a tip of the iceberg. The permutations and combinations may just be limited by imagination

 

Advantages

·        The proprietor of such a document or a program has a right to post his work as a profile freeware or a shareware. However the onus of proving that it does not infringe a copyright of a third party rests with the proprietor.

·         There are no hassles of copyright applications, patent application which fail most of the time and results in exorbitant costs in conjunction with a waste of time.

·        Individuals may post similar piece of work. The idea is to create a profile based on the life time hard work of a HyMember

·        This also serves as a proof of initiative taken in case a HyMember is looking for furthering his career.

·        Such a work which will be stored under his profile can be posted as an URL in his CV for the prospective employers to look at.

·        In the existing system a professional over a period of time may develop a feeling of vacuum. Some questions may start to haunt him

o       What creative work have I done till now.

o       I am at the end of my career and have nothing to look back to. All my hard work has been reduced to being labelled repetitive tasks.

o       I always worked harder and opportunities passed by. There was no recognition and there was no way to show to the world and the industry in particular that my tasks were creative

NOW WITH HyDocument FEATURE, CONCERNS LIKE THE ABOVE WILL BE A THING OF THE PAST.

 

 

How is HyDocument different from HyIntellect

        Various check lists

        Method of calculation

        Flow charts to complete processes

        Standard formulae

        Standard database such as common distances, values, information

 

HyAcademy

 

 

 HyAcademy specifically targets the training of the professionals once they have chosen a career. The training path of the professionals in marine and shipping industry is quite different from the normal academic path offered by colleges and universities.

 

Universities and colleges which offer degrees and certificate courses appeal to a wide variety of audience. Even if such a course is offered for marine industry, then it targets a wide range spectrum of the industry. These results in professionals and executives having to go through a training program which is mostly irrelevant to the field they want to excel in. specific in house courses are made available by different companies and are an excellent source of knowledge. However most of the time it is not counted as qualification and its value lost when a professional moves on to a different job

 

Last but not the least; when the specific and targeted courses are available, their costs are prohibitive

 

www.hydro-nautics.com under the feature of HyAcademy will be running online courses. The material of the courses will be developed in conjunction with the assistance of the major players in the industry. Association will also be sought with the major colleges and university.

 

The advantages of such programs will be

·        Interactive and Online. It can be taken at flexible timing with no need to leave the job.

·        At a fraction of cost and may be free if subsidized by the HyCorporate account

·        Will be recognized in the marine industry

·        Short specific and simple modules with a wide range of permutation and combination specially to suit the candidate

·        No expiry. A candidate may keep taking the e modules and over the period of time the degree may be upgraded as modules are completed.

·        The mentors and examiners will be from the employer so that there is no hassle

·        HyAcademy pays more emphasis on acquiring of knowledge rather than acquiring the degree

·        Over the period of time more and more acceptance by the industry will lead to a higher rate of acceptance of skills and qualifications.
