2021 marked a turning point for the education technology industry across the world. The industry saw a remarkable year-on-year growth of 21%. The Indian EdTech industry, in particular, was valued at US$ 750 million in 2020, and startups in the space raised more than US$ 1.2 billion in funding.
What is causing this uptick in the learning solutions space? Is it a sudden urge that people collectively discovered for learning new skills during the pandemic? Or is it powered by the changes in technology that have changed how we approach work, rendering certain skills and functions obsolete, and creating a huge demand for professionals skilled in newer areas?
As we deliberate on these questions, we will examine how edtech is paving the way for a better future.
As business strategies change, individual skillsets must adapt and grow in order to impact the business. While traditional education teaches people fundamental skills and gives them an understanding of an array of subjects ranging from language to math, from science to history, it falls short of cultivating practical skills in learners. This is the skills gap that the EdTech industry addresses, collectively.
Areas such as project management, product management, business analytics, quality management have had a steady requirement of skilled professionals, well-versed in the methodologies and qualified to take on complex projects and see them through to completion successfully.
However, it is the newer areas such as software engineering, cloud computing, data science, data analysis, AI and Machine Learning, Blockchain and Crypto, that are driving the demand for professionals skilled in the practical applications of these evolving fields of technology.
With so many players in the field, what sets an EdTech company apart? In the simplest terms, it is their ability to gauge the needs of the industry, and match that to the learning experience they create for the people who will become the active contributors to those industries, and make the learning itself an immersive, rewarding experience. And this is where KnowledgeHut stands a cut above others.
