Online Tutoring Services Market in India
India’s online tutoring services market is set to grow exponentially, with a projected increase of USD 10,585.08 million from 2022 to 2027. This growth is driven by factors such as increased awareness of the importance of online education, government expenditure on online-based education, and the emergence of intelligent tutoring systems (ITS). However, the lack of quality training for tutors remains a challenge hindering the market’s growth.
Improving School Safety with Technology
In the wake of recent school shootings in the United States, state legislatures are introducing bills to improve school safety through the implementation of panic buttons, video surveillance, and emergency communication systems. While some experts argue that teacher safety training is more effective and less expensive, these technological solutions have gained bipartisan support as a means to enhance school security.
The Impact of Edtech on Education and Employment
The edtech industry is dedicated to developing tools that facilitate education, with internet-based learning platforms making it easier for people to access formal or informal education. These platforms have created new employment opportunities, as seen with companies like Udemy’s Maven and South Africa’s Teacheron. The potential impact of edtech on Africa is particularly significant, with the African Virtual University being the continent’s first internet-based school. The COVID-19 lockdown demonstrated the potential for edtech to transform elementary and secondary education in Africa, provided the necessary infrastructure is put in place.
