Global Market for eLearning to Reach $169 Billion by 2018; Private Tutoring Nears $103 billion in Market Value

FARMINGTON, Conn., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The rapidly growing global market for eLearning will be driven by increasing user adoption across corporate as well as the academic sectors, according to new market research from leading publisher Global Industry Analysts (GIA). Even as the global economy continues to struggle in the face of uncertainties, the eLearning market has demonstrated resilience due to the fact that weaker economic conditions generally lead job seekers to opt for re-training in order to enhance their employment prospects.

In the global education industry, home tutoring is also emerging as a major trend in the private tutoring sector. While the U.S. represents the largest market eLearning, the Asia Pacific region dominates the private tutoring services sphere.

Global Information Inc. (GII) recommends three excellent market research reports covering the global markets for eLearning, distance learning, and private tutoring from our premium research partner Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

eLEARNING

The global market for eLearning is projected to reach $168.8 billion by 2018. The eLearning market is one of the most rapidly growing sectors in the global education industry. eLearning initiatives hold an edge over conventional learning modes due to their ability to reduce overall training costs based on overall program and factors such as offshoring, deployment of forms and range of content as well as Learning Management Systems (LMS). eLearning also offers additional qualitative benefits, unlike conventional methods, in the form of anytime, anywhere learning, access to worldwide mentoring resources for maximum skill development, and administration as well as control of training calendar from several locations.

Globalization and the increasing need to remain competitive are driving companies to change operational strategies and modify training approaches offered to the employees. Tech-savvy companies are fuelling the demand for technology-led learning initiatives. Young employees, in particular, are active adopters of eLearning and blended learning programs. The scenario is favored by the rise in demand for social learning and Web 2.0 technologies, coupled with the significant rise in social tools.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrateg...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water,...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. Acco...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
