Aditya Malik, MD and CEO at Talentedge reports, "The education tech startups are flocking the market like never before; riding the wave of unceasing learning that’s sweeping the country.

The impact of users acceptance of this learning format can be proportionately seen in the increase in FDI into the online education segment. It is estimated that FDI flow into the education sector from April 2000 to January 2015 is roughly around USD 1,071.15 Mn. This has also led to an increase in number of skilled workers in India.

As per the India Brand Equity Foundation, India will have a whopping 500 Mn workers by 2022. As a result, there will be a constant requirement of up-skilling and knowledge growth to meet the needs of every industry. Hence, the online education landscape is constantly refining itself to cater to the growing needs of learners to provide them with a compelling learning experience.

Today, there are two popular e-learning methods viz. Interactive Learning and Massive Open Online Courses or MOOCs.

Let’s take a look at the levels of efficacy and advantage that both the formats offer to students.
