COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The latest COVID-19 epidemic wreaked havoc on education professionals around the world. Schools and universities have come to a total standstill as a result of the continuous lockdown and have begun adopting online alternatives to continue the year's scheduled curriculum and tests. Student information systems are projected to increase in nations with adequate network infrastructure and internet penetration in this situation. However, in comparison to the existing need for education, these systems cater to a comparatively smaller number of institutes, and hence cost may become one of the key obstacles in the market expansion, perhaps resulting in a loss of opportunity in emerging countries.

Because of the increasing demand for online education, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is projected to have a favorable influence on the industry. According to UNESCO data, 1.3 billion students worldwide were unable to attend their educational institutions in March 2020 and required online education to complete their coursework for the academic year 2020-2021. During the COVID-19 outbreak, eLearning technology gained massive popularity, and it is projected to continue to grow after the pandemic to address a similar situation in the future.
