Corporate E-learning Market: Key Drivers and Trends

Based on our research output, there has been a positive impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The reduction in employee training cost for employers is notably driving the corporate e-learning market growth, although factors such as technological barriers in developing countries may impede market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the corporate e-learning industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Corporate E-learning Market Driver

One of the key factors driving growth in the corporate e-learning market is the reduction in employee training costs for employers. Organizations look for ways to cut down the operating cost and increase their profit. Employee training is one area where organizations spend significantly. e-learning helps organizations to reduce the cost associated with employee training. For instance, the Bank of Ireland is estimated to have reduced its L&D costs significantly after the adaptation of Learningzone, a corporate e-learning system. Such instances of a reduction in training cost encourage end-users to adopt corporate e-learning courses, thereby driving the market growth.

Corporate E-learning Market Trend

The adoption of microlearning is one of the key trends supporting the corporate e-learning market share growth. Micro-learning deals with the use of bite-sized learning modules and short-term learning activities. The focus on personalization and adaptive learning is increasing the popularity of microlearning. In a fast-paced world with short attention spans of individuals, it becomes difficult to keep participants interested in training modules for longer durations. As a result, corporate e-learning vendors are moving from long-duration training courses to microlearning. The idea of microlearning is to help participants learn better and faster through short learning modules. In addition, the information provided by microlearning is concise and relevant and helps address the knowledge gaps of participants. With the advent of microlearning, corporate e-learning vendors are moving from traditional, lecture-style, long-duration videos to short videos. 

Corporate E-learning Market Challenge

The designing of e-learning courses is a major challenge for the corporate e-learning market growth. The need for effective and appealing content cannot be underrated while designing the content of an e-learning module. In organizations where employees are of varying ages, ranging from baby boomers to millennials, providing e-learning content that can appeal to all the participants can be a challenge. Another challenge faced by vendors designing corporate e-learning courses is making the courses memorable and effective. Hence, the main objective while designing e-learning courses should be making them interesting and engaging to draw a learner's attention for longer. Designing region-oriented content is also a challenge faced by corporate e-learning vendors.
