About Cloud-Based English Language Learning
Language learning, one of the oldest segments of the global education market, within the non-formal education category has improved with the evolution of teaching and learning methods. This has improved the credibility and success rate of services offered in this market, resulting in increased expenditure by individuals, corporates, and educational institutions toward language learning courses. Training in the English language is more prominent in the market compared with other languages, given the importance of the academic and corporate sectors. However, the emergence of other languages will also contribute to market growth in the future. The globalization of business and staggering growth of emerging economies have resulted in some other languages gaining shares in the global language learning market. As a result, the number of learners enrolling for courses to learn languages such as Mandarin, French, Spanish, and Arabic is on the rise.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global cloud-based english language learning market to grow at a CAGR of 27.07% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cloud-Based English Learning Language Market 2017-2021

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Edusoft, OKpanda, Sanoma, and Voxy.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The hybrid cloud-based English language learning model is gradually gaining acceptance in the market. In this model, the software or the resources are provided by the public cloud service provider on a private cloud platform. Here, the public and private cloud infrastructures can operate independently and communicate over an encrypted connection that allows portability of data and applications. It also allows institutions to store privileged data on a private cloud and retain computational resources from the public cloud that runs applications relying on these data.”
According to the report, institutions no longer need to invest in maintenance and support services for infrastructure to provide quality education. Cloud-based services simplify infrastructure issues related to English language learning, either internally or on the web, allowing institutions to focus on the teaching process. In this model, the maintenance and operation cost, infrastructure cost, updates, and associated risks are handled by third-party service providers rather than end-users. This helps in the reduction of the overall cost of ownership for institution-wide English language learning programs.
Further, the report states that it has been observed that the majority of the users across industries lack the strategic vision as to build and upgrade cloud infrastructure as per the requirements. Institutions have in-house IT support but lack the ability to conduct effective requirements evaluation on the available technologies against the available budget. For users to maximize their benefits from technology-based classrooms, they need a better understanding of the suitable technologies that can be procured with the constrained budget. The critical decisions regarding technology adoption, which will have an immense impact on the operational activities carried out in campuses, usually rest with the senior management. However, often the reluctance that prevails in the senior management, especially in the education sector, leads to the inaccurate selection of IT tools to deploy or manage cloud platform.
