Learners in both the K-12 and Up-skilling segment will adopt the e-learning process in a big way and that will increase the TAM and monetization opportunities significantly. Companies that will enable schools to adopt technology holistically will also generate value. The sector will continue to see significant investment during the covid period and beyond.
