New Report Released: – Distance Learning Market in India 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the distance learning market in India: EduKart, Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), SchoolGuru, and Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning (SCDL).

Other prominent vendors in the market are: Avagmah, DLP India, Edureka, EMERITUS Institute of Management, Hughes Global Education, Sikkim Manipal University, TalentEdge, University18, University of Delhi, and UpGrad.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One of latest trends in the market is increase in adoption of SPOC model. SPOC is an emerging model that is expected to replace MOOC in the coming years. MOOCs have seen a large number of enrollments from India, but they have been criticized for low completion rates in the range of 5%-7%, and less feedback and group work. SPOC is a variation of MOOCs and is expected to affect distance learning providers that target mid-career professionals. These courses involve learning in small and focused groups, as opposed to thousands of people enrolled to MOOCs.”

According to the report, one of the primary drivers in the market is rise in demand for online distance education. There has been an increase in acceptance of online distance learning from students in the higher education sector as well as learners working as professionals that are looking to enhance their skills and knowledge. The low coverage provided by higher education institutions leads to less convenience for workers that stay at a distance from the institution. Also, the rising ownership of computing devices coupled with improvement in Internet penetration, and increase in government initiatives to promote online distance programs should boost online distance education. The entry of popular Indian institutes, such as the IITs, IIMs, and IIFT, along with private institutions, such as Sikkim Manipal University, in online education also points to the expected growth of distance learning in India.

Further, the report states that one major challenge in the market is complex regulatory environment. There is an absence of a regulatory framework for the delivery of online courses in India. According to the DEC in India, vendors are not allowed by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to offer courses that can be completed solely through the online mode. While offering online supplementary study materials are permitted, there are no clear rules by regulating bodies regarding the delivery of online distance education. This, especially, applies to universities that look to offer distance learning programs in engineering and technological fields. While major changes are happening in the open and distance learning market in India, there is no formal body to regulate the delivery. It is essential that policies are proactively formulated along with codes of practices, so that a conducive environment is created for distance learning and there is more credibility in the programs offered.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
