In personalised learning, students are given the opportunity to adjust their education according to their own needs and interests enabling them to concentrate on topics of greatest relevance and interest. Teachers will also be able to offer more personalised instruction through this type of training.


  • Issues related to risks and concerns

The growing risk of cyber-attacks and Zoom bombers, as well as the need for security measures in VirtualClassrooms is highlighted by widespread adoption of online learning environments. According to an official report from a public data source in the United States, K-12 Cybersecurity Resource Center, 2020-2021 has been designated as "the biggest year for cyber-attacks on schools" in the country.

  • Obstacles in monitoring and measuring student engagement

  • High Data security and privacy risks


  • Growth and expansion

There will be a number of opportunities for market growth as the education sector grows and expands, in particular in emerging economies. Moreover, there are numerous growth opportunities in the market due to a growing trend of digitalisation. The market will also benefit from an increase in the number of users per day, both at large and small scale, as well as complete digitisation of operations.

  • Increasing demand for Digital Learning Platforms


  • Lack of technical expertise

To maintain the smooth growth of market value, there will be difficulties on the market because of lack of expertise in areas such as technology and knowledge particularly within developing economies. Moreover, market growth will be adversely affected by the lack of technological infrastructure in under developed countries.

  • High Cost of Technology

Impact of Economic Slowdown:

These findings support our view that a program of course licences for the Internet may enable colleges to reduce an important proportion of the cost of most four-year degrees. In our study, the cost of per student education was nearly 20% lower by blending inperson with online learning. The cost of per student's training has been reduced by 80% as a result of fully digital learning. The salaries of teachers and the costs associated with producing, delivering and proctoring online courses shall be taken into account in our calculations.  Data analysis and interpretation revealed that only 33.21% of students were comfortable with the use of an internet learning mode within a brief time period. However, social and economically disadvantaged groups such as the Castes SC, which had been expected to face more difficulties due to the rapid shift towards online education, have also found themselves confronted with new challenges. Backward class OBC females and students in rural areas, because of factors such as the price of high-speed internet, 78.20% of females and students in rural areas identified it as a barrier to online learning, insufficient infrastructure, 23.52% of females and students in rural areas needed to share their device frequently or very often, etc. According to 76.47% of respondents, the future of learning will be in “blended mode.” The government should offer the highest quality video conferencing services, a total of 88.92% of respondents indicated. Moreover, stress and fear of exams accounted for 75% or 79% of the students. About half of the students were associated with increased depression.

Impact of Russia Ukraine war:

The Monash Virtual School has provided 70,000 students, whose education had been interrupted by the conflict, including those in Ukraine, with essential educational opportunities before the one-year anniversary of the Ukrainian War. Over a thousand students across the world were provided with free Internet classes by volunteer educators during 2022, which has proven to be of great value for those children who have had so much taken from them. The one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine is February 24, 2023. The educational opportunities offered through this programme have given these young people a sense of normality, structure and hope in spite of the severe damage to their lives. A safe learning environment, a distraction from the horrors of war, and a connection with teachers who want to hear and understand is provided by online classes. With Virtual School Victoria now the largest school in the state with 5,500 students in primary and secondary education, these planned and resourced virtual learning opportunities are becoming increasingly popular. It is not only in Victoria that students from all over Australia and abroad are attracted to the option of online learning, with 477 fulltime primary and secondary virtual schools across the United States enrolling more than 300,000 students each year.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
