Reportstack Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global ICT Market in the Education Sector 2014-2018. Reportstack recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global ICT Market in the Education Sector: Dell Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co., IBM Corp., and Microsoft Corp. “There has been a radical change in the way that knowledge is being imparted in schools, wherein textbooks are gradually being replaced by tablets. This has led to the development of more meaningful and functional applications in the field of education. Tablets have changed the way in which teachers interact with their students. Tablets can store a large volume of information that a student can access at any time. At secondary and higher education levels, tablets reduce the need for a student to refer to a lot of textbooks for each subject. Moreover, with the increasing number of applications being developed specifically for the Education sector, teachers can engage students with interesting educational applications. Hence, students will find the learning process exciting and motivating. This will help increase interactivity between students and teachers, which will in turn enhance the learning process for the student.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the need for creative and innovative learning. Educational institutions are in the process of adopting best practices in delivering creative, innovative, and quality education through the use of computing devices. This has resulted in a focused approach toward the global integration of various educational institutions, thereby enabling them to share their knowledge base and resources to promote interaction among students and teachers.
Further, the report states that low levels of education among students constitute one of the major challenges confronting this market. Many students lack the basic level of computing and technological skills required to use ICT. Lack of funds is one of the main reasons why many educational institutions are not able to provide basic ICT infrastructure.
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.
