Higher EdTech

Educational technology plays a pivotal role in driving and enabling the revolution in post-secondary learning

Overview

Higher EdTech refers to the use of technology by higher and vocational education institutions to transform instruction, learning, assessment, and campus infrastructure to achieve their desired learning objectives and outcomes and enhance the student experience. It seeks to enable students and faculty to learn and work more flexibly and help institutions function more efficiently. Higher educational institutions are those that provide post-secondary (or post K-12) education to prepare students to enter the workforce; they include state university systems, public and private universities, and community colleges.

Besides supporting higher education institutions (B2B), higher EdTech products also support college students and adults desiring post-secondary credentials (B2C), offering alternative learning experiences and pathways not provided by traditional players.

*Note: Currently, we do not actively cover this industry, but we have identified it as a potential industry to add to our coverage.
