BERLIN Women's Cedric Ogbuehi Jersey , March 26 (Xinhua) -- World champions Germany lost 2-3 to England after giving away a 2-0 lead on home soil at Berlin Olympia stadium on Saturday.

Germany dictated the pace for more than sixty minutes and established a 2-0 lead through Toni Kroos and Mario Goetze. However, England turned the tides in the second half thanks to the goals by Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and Eric Dier.

The hosts took the reins from the kick-off and pressed England into the defence. Mats Hummels had the first chance to open the scoring after a rebound but goalkeeper Jack Butland denied the defender from very close range in the 10th minute.

Sixteen minutes later, Mario Gomez overcame Butland after Sami Khedira's pass into path but Gomez' goal cancelled due to an offside position. The ""Three Lions"" lacked in penetration meanwhile Germany broke the deadlock with two minutes remaining in the first half. Toni Kroos had all time and space to drill a low shot from outside of the box into the bottom left from the edge of the box.

After the restart, Germany started where they left off as Mario Gomez doubled the lead after making use on a pinpoint cross by Khedira at the 57th minute. Germany's 2-0 lead was a wakening call for the visitors as Harry Kane capitalized on a rebound following a corner to reduce the arrears into the far post corner from inside the box four minutes later.

England gained momentum and levelled the scores in the 74th minute after Jamie Vardy's back heel effort beat Germany custodian Manuel Neuer into the near post corner following a cross by Nathaniel Clyne.

The match was far from over as England's Dele Alli missed the empty goal from close range in the 84th minute before Erik Dier nodded home the 3-2 lead to stun Germany in the dying minutes of the extra time.

""One can say that England deserved the victory today. It is of course annoying if you give away a 2-0 advantage,"" Germany coach Joachim Loew said.

Germany face Italy for the next friendly meanwhile England host the Netherlands on Tuesday.

" I have been working as a Product Manager with Raptivity for the last 5 years. It has been an amazing journey till now. My favourite moments of this journey have been whenever I have talked to any of our customers and seen how they used Raptivity, how they visualized the product to be used, how they mapped hundreds of Raptivity interactions into various phases of eLearning course development and so on.

As I think about thousands of these conversations that I have had over the years with instructional designers and course creators, I thought I could easily map some similarities between a product manager’s job profile and an instructional designer or even a course creator’s job profile. Here are a few things I could recommend to every budding instructional designer that they could learn from a product manager or vice versa.

1) Have a long term vision
A product manager constantly focuses on the product’s core ideology and the direction in which it has to be developed. A product cannot be built with one feature. Neither can Product Managers focus on only the features being developed at that moment and get busy with it.

Similarly, an ID should focus on the long term learning goal rather than just one course or module. Behaviour of learners cannot be changed in just one course. It takes consistent efforts and the vision to get the desired behaviour changes in a learner. If an ID has that vision in mind as heshe develops courses, the vision will be a reality

2) Product idea itself should solve some problem for the customer
Before getting into product development, a product manager’s key responsibility is to verify if the product idea is just a cool innovative idea or if it really solves a problem. Understanding the problem being solved creates a huge positive difference in later stages of product development, product marketing, and sales.

Similarly, an ID needs to understand the problem that a particular course would solve. Understanding the pain points of learners assists in designing the right course material and helps in attracting the learners to the course; as the course addresses a key problem they are facing.

3) Understand your customers
A question: “Who is your Customer?” is the most commonly asked question to a product manager. Unless you know whom are you addressing, you cannot design a product. Not only who, but also “Where is your customer” helps in designing the product. Answers to these questions are critical as one starts converting a product idea into reality.

Similarly, an ID should know which learners are they targeting and where are they located. This helps in connecting at an emotional level with the learners. The age group they belong to, the lingo they use, the images they prefer, the accent they understand, and many more course design elements can be thought through before even beginning with the course development.

4) Product design makes a huge difference
A product manager always starts with product design first before getting into developing the product. Product visualization and how it functions is the key not only in faster development with minimum reworks, but designing a user friendly product.

Similarly, an ID with a visualization of the course, the interactions it would have, the experience a learner would have while interacting with the course, is the key for successful course development. An ID should have a clear visualization of every small thing like the labels to use, font size and style, color combinations to use, places where help would be needed, etc. In addition, if mLearning is being considered, then the devices the learners would use to take the course would be key design considerations before. Jerseys Wholsale   Jerseys Wholesale   Jerseys Online   Jerseys From China   Nike NBA Jerseys Wholesale   MLB Jerseys Free Shipping   Cheap NFL Jerseys Online   Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys   Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys   Wholesale NFL Jerseys
