Many regions closed schools for a limited amount of time but luckily most experts in different countries realized that closing schools for younger kids is less critical to fight the pandemic. So for kids and youngsters below 18 years old, it’s expected that schools will continue to operate close to normal, assuming extra security precautions are followed. But as a result, there is no big market to develop new homeschooling solutions.
For colleges and universities, the challenge is different. Many are (for now) relying on remote schooling via zoom or other existing digital platforms. Overall, it’s surprising to me we haven’t seen radical new experiments to rethink what remote courses could look like. This target group, in combination with training programs for professionals, remains a huge market. This need will be here to stay, so for this domain, I’m still hopeful to see more innovations rising up in the months ahead.
