E-learning is a learning system that utilizes electronic devices and information and communication technology (ICT) for delivering information in the form of text, video, audio and images. It offers an interactive environment for formalized and flexible learning solutions via the internet, intranet, satellite broadcast, or interactive TV. It allows education institutes to reach a wider audience across the education, agriculture, healthcare, and training sectors. Apart from this, it is also deployed by corporates to conduct training programs and several collaborative activities, including project work and assignments.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

GCC E-Learning Market Trends:

The market in GCC is primarily driven by the increasing preference for digitally interactive learning solutions. This is supported by the improving internet connectivity across the region and the penetration of IoT-based smart devices. Moreover, the numerous initiatives undertaken by the governments of several countries in the region to improve the educational infrastructure is also creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by the rapid outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which impelled numerous GCC countries to go under complete lockdown as a preventive measure to contain the spread of the pandemic. This led educational institutions to shift to e-learning solutions to maintain social distancing measures. Apart from this, the widespread preference for gamification-based e-learning content among end users is also acting as a major growth-inducing factor. Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the increasing integration of assistive e-learning solutions with speech recognition and sensing technologies and the widespread deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) for providing learning solutions. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to witness robust growth during 2021-2026.
