What the EdTech Landscape Looks Like to Students and Users [Infographic]

A link to Skillset.com for IT career planningAs a new and growing member of the education technology industry, Skillset has always been interested in our own industry. The “EdTech” industry is new, diverse, and growing extremely quickly.

In fact, according to a BMO economic report, EdTech has been the fastest and most consistently growing segment of the entire multi-billion dollar education industry, and shows no signs of slowing down.

But where is all of this growth going? Who is it benefitting — students? Teachers? Or the companies themselves.

We decided to take a closer look at the data (and the key players in the industry) to see how it’s impacting actual users and students. The result is the infographic below — with a breakdown of the information after the graphic. Please feel free to comment, share, and repost this infographic!

Announcing a New Certification Resource: Skillset Facebook Groups!

We’re big on practice questions at Skillset. That’s why each of our certification practice tests has several thousand questions within it: Because practice, you may have heard, makes perfect.

But if there’s one thing we’re as enthusiastic about as practice questions, it’s discussion, feedback, and back-and-forth learning. The topic we spend the most time on, beyond writing more questions, is how to give our users more options to connect with one another, provide insights and feedback, and learn from one another.

That’s exactly why we’ve created a series of Facebook Groups specifically designed to provide motivation and discussion around certification.

For every certification practice test we provide on Skillset, we’ve created a group (and we’ll keep adding them as we add certification tests). And in each group, we’ll post one question every day. The objective being: Find your daily motivation, learn something new, and find a resource and a community to rally around as you prepare for your own big test (or as you simply stay fresh and knowledgable).

Check out (and join!) each of our groups as they relate to specific tests:

Let us know what you think, and keep an eye out for our first questions, coming up today — and every day — for you to pick over and discuss.

Happy testing!
