As far as higher education is concerned, the number of students is constantly increasing.
The education sector is also impacted by the digitalization of activities. Many institutions, schools and companies are digitising their training and including e-learning in their learning methods.
E-learning has proven its benefits. The Brandon Hall Group has shown in a study that training time is reduced by 40-60% with identical results. Accessibility, cost reduction, simplified management, new experience, digital learning is becoming an obvious choice for companies.
Since COVID, research suggests that the online learning market size has crossed $250 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach $1 Trillion by 2027.
The United States is already very advanced. They have 40% of the world market, followed by Asia, with China and India. In 2017, 77% of private US companies were already integrating e-learning into their training systems.
In France, companies are increasingly interested in the digitalization of training. In 2019, face-to-face training was already less and less popular and 97% of respondents wanted to switch to digital according to a survey by IFTS, the Institut des Métiers du Blended Learning.
Just before covid, the share of face-to-face training was only 19%.
The private sector is more initiated, 92% of French companies use blended learning for only 70% of public institutions.
The Unow study confirmed this trend in a survey of 1,500 people working in the training sector in May 2019. 92% emphasize the importance of digital training.
Another survey, this time conducted by the FFFOD Digital Learning Observatory, indicates that 71% of respondents in the training sector find digital learning effective. 61% even think that the method favours the integration of the elements taught.
Edflex, the e-learning platform brought together training professionals in May 2020. The aim was to find out their views on the sector and its evolution in the post-covid world. Indeed, many French people have taken advantage of the confinements to acquire new skills and learn through digital. This led to questions about training methods and their organization within the company.
More than 300 experts responded to a questionnaire which helped to identify new trends.
The crisis has therefore accelerated the digitalization of training and forced companies to adapt thanks to digital tools. Will the new learning methods last?
