Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Europe E-learning Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted European countries, including Italy, Spain, France, and Germany. Before the onset of the pandemic, the e-learning market growth was attributed to the growing demand for educational digitalized platform solutions from schools, institutions, and universities. However, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in lockdowns in Europe, leading to working and studying from home, which promoted hybrid work models. As a result, the preference for online and virtual classes increased, significantly promoting the demand for e-learning solutions across the region. In 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the education industry in Europe shifted from traditional teaching methods to online teaching platforms. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many universities in Europe offered mixed learning methods comprising on-site and online study and massive open online courses (MOOCs). MOOCs, in particular, are a great way to gain insight into a university's teaching methods before starting an entire program. In a few Member States of the European Union (EU), the initial experience of students studying abroad started remotely, i.e., from home, and continued on campus after the post-pandemic recovery period. Many European universities offer bachelor's and master's degrees to be taught entirely online. Thus, the abovementioned factors are expected to drive the Europe e-learning market growth during the forecast period.
