From January 24-26, 2017, the 25th LEARNTEC event will take place in Karlsruhe, Germany. LEARNTEC is a trade fair and congress in digital education for school, university and work, and will showcase the latest trends and future developments in digital learning.
Digital solutions for education have arrived in the mainstream and LEARNTEC has been following this development for over two decades. At the outset, the conference was attended only by specialists and experts, today digital learning scenarios pervade schools, universities, public institutions and companies.
This digital transformation is taking place in all areas of society and thus so is education. Technical solutions, such as virtual reality, game engines, mobile technologies and wearables, are rapidly changing the market and offer new opportunities for modern learning. This also means a change for society and organisations.
There will be more than 240 exhibitors from 12 nations who will present the latest applications and programs for learning with IT and current trends, as well as future educational scenarios. More than 7,500 IT executives and HR decision-makers are expected to attend the Jubilee edition of the event.
A recent study on the e-learning market estimates that the sector will continue to grow strongly. When the average value of all expert assessments is taken as a basis, respondents predicted a turnover growth of the e-learning sector of 116 percent over the next five years. The industry turnover of currently 600 million will therefore more than double by the year 2020 to 1,3 billion euro. This represents an annual growth rate of 17 percent. This scenario points to economic opportunities for the e-learning industry in the course of the digitalisation of learning in Germany.
