Education has become increasingly digital as the learning ecosystem has changed more in the last ten years than in the several decades prior. This change is being driven by the emergence of digital technologies, proliferation of mobile devices and the emergence of a robust and always connected infrastructure. Also, new-age learners have now come to expect increasingly personalized, engaging, and interactive learning models that facilitate anytime, anywhere learning.
As a result, many traditional publishing companies have reinvented themselves as digital first entities to meet the widespread acceptance of flipped classes as a learning model across K12, HiED and professional education. This transformation has been even more evident among learning solutions providers focused on providing professional and vocational learning courses.
While technology has been a game changer in education, a lot of its impact was initially restricted to asynchronous learning models. However, this is changing with synchronous learning models also embracing disruptive technologies to facilitate improved learning. With advanced analytics, live streaming and AR-VR, EdTech is all set to enhance the quality of education while adopting new learning models and delivery mechanisms.
