This industry research report identifies BNED LoudCloud, D2L, Ellucian, and Flat World Education as the key vendors in the competency-based education market for higher education in the US. This report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by product type such as competency-based education technologies and competency-based technologies platforms.

Overview of the competency-based education market for higher education in the US

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the competency-based education market for higher education in the US will grow steadily during the predicted period and will post an impressive CAGR of more than 22% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the constant rise in student debts owing to the expensive traditional education programs as one of the primary factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market. The considerable increase in student debts in the US has resulted in affecting the financial security and the disposable income of the young generation. This will induce students to look for alternative education programs. Competency-based education is self-paced and online and offers several advantages over the traditional educational model. Also, competency-based degree programs grant credits through multiple channels, such as prior learning assessments, work experience, and credit mobility for transferring credits, which significantly reduces the cost of completing a degree. For instance, the competency-based Bachelor of Administration (BBA) program at Brandman University comes with embedded content and costs only around USD 13,500, which is significantly lesser than the fee for traditional courses.

The emergence of learning relationship management systems is identified as one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market during the next four years. Learning relationship management systems are software tools that can be used to measure students’ progress by tracking the mastery of competency, in real-time. This will enable instructors to effectively create, design, and manage competency-based learning and also helps in ensuring that the best ideas are accessible to both the educators and the students.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Though characterized by the presence of a number of players, the market is dominated by vendors who are leaders in offering several educational technology solutions such as learning management system (LMS), assessment tools, adaptive learning platforms, student information systems, and learning analytics. Few vendors have started creating distinguished offerings to cater to the competency-based education model, whereas several other vendors are adapting their existing offerings with features that cater to competency-based education. The expected increase in the number of higher educational institutions switching from the traditional education paradigm to competency-based education will intensify the competition among vendors. As a result, vendors will start offering easy customization services at affordable prices to address the unique needs of their target customers, which in turn, will help them sustain the market competition.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • BNED LoudCloud
  • D2L
  • Ellucian
  • Flat World Education

The other prominent vendors in the market are Articulate, Blackboard, Edmodo, Fidelis Education, Fishtree, itslearning, Knewton, Motivis Learning, Saba, and Schoology.
