Singapore e-Learning market has been through transitional phases and the IT plans by the government to promote education have been put in place since late 1970’s. The government has come up with 6 IT plans and half of these were embarked upon by the Ministry of Education. There were three IT plans implemented and well in place before the first ICT master plan in education was implemented. Thus, when the launch of the first ICT Master plan was initiated, the ICT landscape was already injected into the educational landscape of the country.
Singapore e-learning companies serve the purpose of providing technology and content to various sectors such as corporate, educational institutes, government agencies and privately owned enterprises. In recent years there has been substantial development in Infrastructure, ICT sectors, demographic profile and an increased demand for skilled workers. Owing to this Singapore has experienced rapid growth in e-learning sector.
The content services market has dominated the overall E-learning market in Singapore. The content services include course structure, multi-media, testing, assesments and others. The growing need of technology oriented training which includes aircraft maintenence lessons, car driving lessons, pshychomotor tests and others have created a demand for simulation training content as well, which is also a part of digital content.
Technological service is another category of the digital education market in the country. It encompasses the software platforms, online tests software, smart classes, smart authoring tools and others. The growing need of corporate training has largely influenced the corporate individuals to develop new skills and enable them to understand their job role and functioning of the industry.
The rising demand of skilled labor, human resources in advanced fields such as management, technology and others has led an increase in the demand for digital education products in the country from post K-12 students.
The penetration of digital education in Singapore has increased at a rapid pace in government and private schools, pre-nursery schools, school labs, colleges and universities, in the last few years as the ICT master plans in education have progressed. The vocational training courses include a number of courses such as art and crafts, photography, stitching, cooking, learning new language and others.
The rising demand for digital education from corporate and universities has provided a strong impetus to the multi-media facilities on learning software platforms. Virtual learning has shown immense potential to fill in the gap that exists due to geographic restrictions by improvising the quality of traditional methods of learning.
