PreK-12 Dominates Growth in E-Learning by David Nagel

"Driven in part by rapid growth in online education, by 2015, preK-12 academic institutions in the United States will spend $4.9 billion on "self-paced" electronic learning products and services, according to a new report released this week by research firm Ambient Insight. That represents a compound annual growth rate of 16.8 percent from 2010 spending levels, outpacing every other segment, including higher education and healthcare.", reports THE Journal.

The report, "The US Market for Self-paced eLearning Products and Services: 2010-2015 Forecast and Analysis," encompasses a category of electronic learning that Ambient Insight refers to as "self-paced," which includes learning management, classroom management, and learning content management systems, along with student information systems and hosted learning platforms, among others. This category does not include mobile learning, gaming, or several other major e-learning categories.
