Almost 50% of India's IT professionals quit before completing a new course: Edureka’s report
A learner behaviour study by Edureka, a global e-learning company, has claimed that more than 50% of e-learners drop out before completing the course. The report goes on to show that although upskilling has gathered importance due to the decreasing lifespan of technical skills, low course completion rates continue to plague the e-learning industry.
The survey conducted by Edureka was aimed at understanding the modern Indian IT Professional's relationship with learning on the job and their behaviour when it comes to learning. The online survey was conducted among 339 Indian IT professionals who were interested in online courses.
Vineet Chaturvedi, Co-Founder, Edureka, said, "Low course completion rate is a critical problem that plagues the e-learning industry, but it's often forgotten in the race to acquire more customers. As the industry matures, completion rates will define the adoption of e-learning among professionals. Tech learners need constant motivation, high-level interactivity and engagement from learning platforms. Today's e-learning platforms need to offer the best of both worlds – online learning's inherent convenience and ease of access with offline's real-time interaction and engagement. Our report has revealed key behavioural insights that give a roadmap to building better digital learning platforms for the industry. We're also proud to say that our live, online, instructor-led learning model has helped us achieve the highest course completion rate in the e-learning industry."
