Education Sector

The tech revolution in education

The e-learning market has grown exponentially over the years as the education sector embraces new, less-traditional, digital ways to engage students and provide the best possible learning experience. It is forecast that the market could surpass £191 billion worldwide by 2022.

However, it's critical to ensure campuses and faculty are equipped with software that is right for them and fulfills the needs of the curriculum.

Check out Climb's top software tools for education that students, educators, and administrators will love.


Who is using elearning?

Whereas schools and universities have embraced technology in the classroom and continue to expand and invest in new solutions and learning tools, they’re not the only businesses taking teaching digital.

Companies in all sectors such as sales, construction, catering and marketing are investing in technology as an alternative to face-to-face training for staff. Training can include onboarding, health and safety, changes in company software, processors and even the law (such as GDPR).

Benefits of combining traditional education with advanced technology



ELearning tools in the classroom provides more variety in the lesson structure which increases productivity and engagement in students.

Replay and record

Replay and record

Record and replay lessons at home which avoids missed information and reduces the need to follow up with the teacher after class.

Customised learning

Customised learning

Adaptable applications and UI’s allow students to customise how and when they learn, catering for multiple learning styles.



Utilising online resources and elearning software is paperless, which is both beneficial to the environment and more cost-effective.

Online resources

Online resources

As students have 24 hour access to learning resources, teachers have more time to either help one-on-one or take on more students.

Reduce cost

Reduce cost

Companies can reduce training costs and simplify training processes by swapping out one-on-one in-person training for online alternatives.

Remote learning

Thanks to online-only universities and the increase of popularity of remote working, elearning was already increasing as a method of training staff and completing courses. Due to the ongoing pandemic, educators and organisations alike were forced to implement universal elearning software, processes and content to ensure the wheels kept turning, even when students could not physically be in a classroom.

This has been a pivotal time for elearning and it’s clear that the new normal post-pandemic will see a lot more individuals and companies choosing to work and learn remotely, part-time and full-time.

Therefore, there has never been a better time to introduce your customers to state-of-the-art training software and elearning solutions.
