Why Edtech Startups in India are Gaining Popularity

Edtech startups have paved the way for students to push their limits and get out of boring learning patterns and study in a holistic way. Introducing new ways of teaching such as audio-visual lessons, interactive content and online courses, among others, edtech startups in India have totally transformed the way of teaching as well as learning.

There are various reasons that are fueling the edtech industry in India and are helping individuals to entering an industry worth billions. Here are some of the reasons as to why edtech startups are gaining popularity.

No Geographical Boundaries

The traditional way of acquiring education always had something to do with geographical proximity and physical presence. For instance, if we consider the erstwhile systems of Gurukula, students had to go to the villages that were far from their places and reside in them and receive education and other skillsunder the guidance of the gurus. Similarly, the current schooling system comprises a 6-hour stay of students in the school premises.

However, with online education and edtech startups coming into the play, the geographical boundaries and physical presence are no longer mandatory for students to acquire knowledge. 

Rise of LowCost Mobile Phones and Internet Services

The digital penetration of low-cost mobile phones is one of the biggest catalysts of the edtech culture that is prevailing in India. Not just has the penetration of lowcost mobile phones contributed in the growth of edtech startups, lowcost internet services is also a major contributor to the industry with over 550 million people connected to the internet. The amalgamation of both these lowcost services has given many advantages to the edtech industry, hence filling the young entrepreneurs with confidence to start off with a business.

Inducing Trust in Parents

There was a time when parents were reluctant to trust on such new ways of education for  their children’s studies. Parents were convinced that nothing else in this world could teach their children better than the traditional education system. However, since technology hasn’t left any field untouched, people are willing to understand the worth of technology and becoming open to experimenting with new technologies. Therefore, they have started allowing their kids to spend time on online learning technologies, which in turn, gives a boost to the edtech industry.

No Language Barriers

As these edtech startups are taking the world by storm, they are making sure that they reach out to every student without any barrier. One of the biggest barriers in education remains the language. In a multi-linguistic country like India, many of the edtech businesses come up with solutions to provide education in every language possible. In this way, edtech companies help in eradicating the biggest barrier in the way of acquiring knowledge. This is another reason that the edtech industry is witnessing such a massive growth across the country..
