eLearning has been around for some decades. But several factors have led to the accelerated adoption of e-learning across multiple levels of education and for upskilling purposes across domains.
Today, consumers have greater access to affordable smart devices and internet data.

Currently, the K–12 education market is estimated to be worth $2.7 billion, followed by university education and upskilling platforms.
