Digital Education Market Introduction & Overview

The growth in digital technologies and the pace at which they evolve are making the world more connected. From education to financial & health management, digital technologies are becoming profoundly intertwined with daily life. Digital education refers to the utilization of digital tools & technologies in teaching & learning processes. Various digital platforms are rapidly entering the education and skills market to provide knowledge and skills innovatively. Earlier classroom training was restricted to textbooks and blackboard learning. Digital education is replacing traditional classroom training in several ways. Many nations have responded to technological changes by embedding digital technology in educational institutions to provide a better interactive learning experience. It also includes peer-to-peer social learning platforms that promote open learning and enhance collaboration between students. For example, edX, a collaborative non-profit online learning program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University, links like-minded people through peer-to-peer social learning tools.

The digital education market is driven by factors, such as the worldwide penetration of the Internet, reduced infrastructure costs, increased scalability through online learning, and the increased demand for micro-learning. Digital education also delivers interactive training cost-effectively. It allows students to learn at their own pace and return to the class at any time and any location. Moreover, to prevent the spread of COVID-10, schools and universities are moving to distance learning by adopting technologies and tools to bridge the gaps between tutors and students.

However, the lack of face-to-face interactions and direct monitoring may restrain the growth of the market to a certain extent.
