Top 50 EdTech Tools in Higher Education 2019


Technology can become the “wings” that will allow the educational world to fly farther and faster than ever before – if we will allow it.”

Rapid changes in technology are propelling the growth of Higher Education to the next level. From creating a virtual classroom to processing Nano certifications to reducing operation cost with automation to rejuvenating research and learning, technology has permeated the entire education ecosystem.

Currently, Indian higher education industry is valued at USD 19.17 billion and is expected to increase to USD 35.03 billion by 2025 at the rate of 11% CAGR.

This growth will be fuelled by the rise in the government spending and private investments on technology in terms of developing digital learning platforms, implementation of AI, ML, VR, AR, Blockchain and Cloud Technologies to be adopted by higher education institutes and universities.

The global EdTech market is expected to grow at 17% per annum to USD 611 Bn by 2025, led by explosive growth in the Asian region. By the year 2025, the Asian EdTech market, led by India and China, is expected to have 24% share of the global EdTech market. The Indian Higher Education is expected to see a huge transformation in the next five years because of emerging technologies and expansion of the EdTech market.

In such a scenario, top decision-makers in higher education ask the following two relevant questions:

  1. Which technology is best suited for the growth of my institution or university?
  2. How can our institute or university leverage such emerging technologies to go to the next level?

The answers to these questions are included in our premium report on ‘Top 50 EdTech Tools in Higher Education 2019’, an exclusive report on best-in-class tools for academia. It identifies the challenges faced by the higher education institutes and universities, and how EdTech tools are able to provide strategic solutions to these challenges.

In addition, the report aims to provide an in-depth understanding of existing and potential EdTech market across regions. Our objective is to bring qualitative and quantitative research on the scope of EdTech and provide an understanding of the best practices by the EdTech community in higher education. We have also featured case studies from academic powerhouses like IIMs along with insightful knowledge pieces from industry leaders like Microsoft, Google, Simplilearn and more.

With the release of the report, we hope to offer new insights on EdTech to top management, leaders, and administrators in academia to help them explore new technologies that have the potential to transform higher education.
