Overview of the global higher education game-based learning market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global higher education game-based learning market will grow steadily at a CAGR of around 14% by 2020. Motion-sensing technology can be used to study the motion of the learner while the learning process is in progress and can record inferences accordingly. For instance, the eye-tracking feature can be used to deduce the focus level of the student, while the facial expressions and head positions can be studied to understand the learner’s engagement and also the focus level. This helps the instructor to modify the learning environment and content according to the preference of the students. Motion-sensing technology also helps learners practice physical skills or nuances, which can be implemented into the learning activity. For instance, the incorporation of physical movements or activities trains the learner about the optimum force or pressure required for a particular task. This will people the demand for the implementation of gamification in education, especially in the higher education sector.

Virtual reality (VR) can provide interactive and immersive experience using digital platforms. VR and augmented reality (AR) technologies will soon find applications not only in STEM courses but also in liberal art courses like archaeology and history. These technologies improve kinesthetic experiences, which can increase motivation, retention rates, and engagement in students, and will subsequently enhance the adoption of educational games in the higher education segment.

Outlook of the global school furniture market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global school furniture market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 16% during the forecast period. The rising demand for ergonomically designed furniture is the primary growth driver for this market. Recently, it has been observed that the educators are paying close attention to the evolving needs of their students and teachers regarding seating arrangements as they are becoming more concerned about the adverse effects of unsuitable and uncomfortable desks and chairs used in classrooms. Since traditional furniture designs affect the long-term physical health of users, the demand for ergonomically designed furniture will increase rapidly during the predicted period.

The demand for modern furniture is also growing rapidly due to the recent change in teaching methodologies. Present day teaching involves students through collaborative and social learning methods. Hence, to organize classrooms and support group activities, the furniture should be portable. This increase in the demand for portable furniture will bolster the prospects for growth in this market during the forecast period.

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the curriculum and data management market in Europe will grow steadily at a CAGR of about 16% by 2020. To improve the employment prospects of students in the competitive job market, educational institutions have the responsibility to inculcate industry-related skills and talent among students. This has resulted in the requirement to upgrade the curriculum regularly to improve content absorption among students. Vendors offer educational software with various features through which different types of data can be integrated into the curriculum. This facilitates faculties to introduce changes in the curriculum, which will lead to better curriculum design, increased productivity, and improved efficiency among students. Institutions can also use the software to include student assessments against various parameters in separate subjects. All these features result in the improved alignment of content, which will induce more institutions to adopt curriculum and data management software in the coming years.

Using cloud-based software eliminates the need to install the software on separate servers and also discards the requirement of skilled personnel to manage the software. This will substantially reduce costs incurred by educational institutions and as a result, the use of cloud-based curriculum software will emerge as one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market during the forecast period. Moreover, cloud-based solutions also allow users to access the data
