e-Learning Market to hit $56B by 2010

Short report – e-Learning Market to hit $56B by 2010. I’m interested in what is being defined as elearning, as it seems many marketing activities (training your clients) serve basic learning functions. If elearning is seen as what happens in an online course only, I’m not convinced the market is that large (for example, how is K-12 elearning measured? Is it a course that is offered online? blended?). Is the physical infrastructure (computers for example) included in the cost? Of course, to get access to that info, one needs only purchase a report for a few hundred dollars. (And what does this statement mean???: “The key driver for e-learning usage is attributed to an increased number of solutions and services”.) Not even sure why I link to it…oh yeah, now I remember: elearning is growing rapidly in the US, Asia and Europe are lagging in overall adoption, but also growing rapidly. Canada doesn’t exist.

    Most of what I have read recently defines the e-learning industry as those that create electronic resources for education and training (this includes electronic supported texts, publishing, software, course management systems). I’m not sure I would define this as “e-learning” as much as “e-learning resources”.

    $56b !!! I definitely need a pay rise then !
    I think (hope) that mobile learning is going to bring down the cost of eLearning quite considerably, not sure how a $56b eLearning market is of that much use to the global economy.
