This industry research report identifies Discovery Education, Edmodo, McGraw-Hill Education, and Pearson Education as the key vendors in the professional development market in Europe. This report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by end-users such as K-12, higher education, and pre-K-12.

Overview of the professional development market in Europe

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the professional development market in Europe will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 4% by 2020. The emergence of several technologies that enhance the delivery of professional development courses is considered to be one of the primary growth factors for this market. For instance, blended learning can be used to enhance the professional development model by combining features of both in-person and online learning and also includes features like real-time video conferencing sessions. Technological advancements have also led to the development of online communities or virtual environments where teachers with similar interests and professional needs can work in collaboration, exchange ideas, and also gain expert advice. These virtual environments also allow for collegiality, mentoring, and professional affiliation. Learning objects and interactive web tools are other technologies that help learners grasp or revise complex concepts and also complete assigned tasks efficiently.

The rise in adoption of smartphones and the increase in internet penetration will lead to the incorporation of mobile learning to enhance the delivery of professional development courses. Mobile learning enables educators to circumnavigate time constraints and also access learning material from anywhere. Mobile learning can be implemented as a blended learning option and can also be an effective replacement for traditional offline learning through printed material. This will help vendors to gain a competitive advantage over their competitors and also widen their customer base. Mobile learning will also enable the increasing use of teleconferencing and distance learning by teachers and will emerge as one of the major trends that will gain traction in the professional development for teachers market in the coming years.
