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.

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.
