Role of Analytics In Teachstack – What benefits does Analytics Assessment add to your business?

The EdTech industry was a darling of the investment community even before the break of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to EdSurge, investment in US EdTech companies reached $1.66 billion across 105 deals in 2019, a five-year high in value. While digital educational applications were already widespread in the US, developing nations such as India too saw a surge in the adoption of EdTech in recent years.  As a result, consumer-focused online education platforms like Teachstack have seen an increase in adoption of the digitization of classroom learning i.e the virtual classroom, primarily for vocational learning. 

Major Areas To Address – Why Analytics is Required in Video Conferencing

Students from all walks: Providing students with the right level of attention and personalization has always been a challenge for a future-ready Indian education system due to the disparity in student-teacher ratios. AI-enabled platforms can help in identifying knowledge gaps, understanding how workforce students learn, and tailoring online courses as per the most effective learning pathway for each student. Fostering collaboration beyond the classroom and utilizing interactive platforms or gamification are other benefits of integrating technology in the learning process.

Lifelong learning and professional development: India is expected to have a population of 140 million college-going people by 2030. These people will have a significant role to play in shaping India’s competitiveness in the global talent market. However, given the emphasis on rote learning and lack of relevant digital skills, India’s education system is facing challenges in preparing a job-ready workforce. While online professional courses and corporate training were already on the rise before the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect a surge in demand for learning new and advanced skills around digital, analytics, automation, and cyber security from students and professionals across industries.

One size does not fit all: In countries like India, online education not only has the potential to lower barriers in terms of access to education but could also be an attractive education option for value-conscious students and parents. EdTech platforms have the potential to offer flexible learning models at different price points that are suited for a student’s socioeconomic background and specific needs.
