Education organizations across the industry including public or private, for profit or not, elementary, secondary, postsecondary, vocational, and charter, are focused on ways to improve the learning experience.

Online learning is an effective way to do so, giving students new, flexible ways to access classes and content. Education faces unique challenges as it tries to keep pace with the digital transformations of other industries. Resources are often tight, both in terms of people and budgets. Online skills courses need to be cost-effective, and most of all, they need to elevate the learning experience for students.
