Many people have started using e-learning services because of its advantages. For example, you can take lessons from anywhere and at any time as long as you have the Internet, which enables you to use your free time efficiently. You don’t need to commute to school by a packed train but rather to start up your computer. No need to apply for a student visa to take a degree from Australian universities. No need to wake up early to attend a morning class after a night shift of work. And no need to look for a nanny to take care of your kids while you attend a class! Online resources are suitable for review as well. Video and/or audio resources provided by e-learning services can be replayed again and again if you happen to miss instructions. It enables you to promote your understanding and improve your weak skills.
The e-learning market is growing by 7.6% annually. In Europe, the UK is a leading country in the sector with approx. 28% of the European market share, followed by Germany. This might be because the British government has encouraged students to have digital devices and promoted personalised education. The growth of the market size in Eastern Europe is almost as high as Asia. Europe has great potential to open a new e-learning market!
