“Higher education is moving beyond being just access to content to focusing on outcomes. Long lasting companies are getting built where the focus is giving the right education - which could lead to outcomes. You will see many companies that will control the end to end experience of learners. K-12 has seen an influx of technology coming to the classrooms in the early days. There is also a larger trend of technology entering the ecosystem for process efficiency and enablement - communication admission process reminded etc. However the big challenge in that space requires multiple stakeholders to be convinced for any purchase decision - and becomes a hindrance to scale. The larger companies have really cracked this sector and scaled on the back of great product and more importantly - a very solid distribution network.“
