India is the 2nd largest market for E- Learning and has the second highest number of EdTech companies in the world. 

 

The Education market in India is surpassing all forecasts of growth, the market has unravelled opportunities for Global & Domestic Edtech companies due to the demand to access quality education from a young population of learners. The opportunity is indeed very big but there are challenges in providing equitable access to education to all due to a dominant digital divide in the Indian society and other factors.
The objective of this knowledge sharing session is to identify gaps in delivery of education in India and opportunities to leverage technology to move a step closer towards our endeavour to provide equitable access to education for all in India.
