EdTech trends

Our representatives were in the thick of all the events’ hustle and bustle, allowing us to create an exclusive compilation of the latest edtech trends and hottest topics that are shaping the EdTech domain in 2024.

1. Leadership Training

Leadership Training

Growing a loyal person who will guide your business to success sounds like an activity worthy of some investment, right? Thousands of companies, including those with minimal layers of hierarchy, seem to agree on this. To such an extent that it’s projected that from 2021 to 2026, the market size for global corporate leadership training will grow up to about USD 18 billion.

At the same time, after a short break in 2020, when most organizations paused leadership development, its model has also evolved with new ideas, where the main points are:

  • Development of personalized learning paths powered by technology
    Assuming that the existing one-size-fits-all online learning courses will work perfectly for every company and every person, overlooking the magic of context can really be considered a crime against your business. So, the solution that EdTech experts unanimously agree upon is pretty straightforward here — creating tailor-made programs that will address your company’s specific challenges in real-time.
  • Preserving the company’s culture while training remotely
    Keeping the unique vision formed by the founders, particularly within the middle market segment, is more on trend than ever. So ensuring, even if only online, communication with founders, constant feedback from them and other colleagues as well as access to their experience and stories through collaborative learning become a direct path to a successful leadership training program.
  • Addressing immediate challenges
    Going beyond empowering leaders with future-ready skills, but also equipping them with the ones that address immediate challenges of the organization is something that is bound to bring success in the long term.

However, as it requires creating a program rather quickly, selecting engaging learning formats, and effectively measuring success, all while keeping materials up to date in real-time, many businesses miss the opportunity to take advantage of growing strong leaders within their companies.

Which is especially upsetting, since this process is much more straightforward and uncomplicated than it seems. Want to find out more? We can guide you through all the steps.

2. Hybrid Learning

Hybrid Learning

The pandemic prevention norms have made commuting to offices or classrooms seem like an unnecessary stressful experience. Universities and training centers are gradually adopting this format, and some companies are expanding the list of benefits for employees beyond the branded home slippers, offering flexible learning options.

That’s why in every domain there is a tendency now to get practical advantages of hybrid learning, including making a broader use of edtech trends to offer superior engagement and customization.

At the same time, such challenges are still raining on the blended learning parade in 2024:

  1. Reduced participation and engagement of remote students.
  2. Limited software and equipment quality that hinders remote students from fully engaging in in-class discussions.
  3. The need to adapt infrastructure and materials for both remote and in-person environments.
  4. Constraints of controlling exams and assessing the knowledge gained during online learning.

But since Oxagile is actively incorporating innovative solutions like remote proctoring systems, desktop sharing and browsing, second screens, and many more leading edtech industry features, we’re up for such challenges to ensure a smooth transition between online and offline settings.

3. Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence

Do we need to highlight that the sky is blue? Probably not. The same relates to the fact that AI keeps increasing its impact on the way we work, learn, and teach. And it’s definitely one of the defining elements of online learning in 2024.

From automating administrative tasks like record keeping or grading tests to comprehensive AI tutors and chatbots — this has all been a reality for a while now.

This year is expected to bring a wave of the following AI features:

  • Emotion recognition to determine if the students struggle and help them
  • Identifying the gaps in teachers’ presentations and educational materials to suggest adjustments
  • Developing adaptive learning systems that can change the difficulty level of the content based on the learner’s success
  • Combination of AI with other technologies like VR to build engaging learning and give students a chance to use their new skills in real-world scenarios

4. Edutainment


In 2024, the fusion of captivating visuals, intricate narratives, and playful formats will also be one of the main edtech trends. And what’s peculiar, this innovative approach, edutainment, will be used to help learners of all ages, with a variety of goals, be it career transitions, supplementary learning, corporate eLearning, skill development, or college preparation.

Experts predict that the EdTech scene will be filled with companies that go beyond traditional schooling to meet the demand for educational entertainment services and will be using video games, apps, and websites like YouTube and social networks as vital elements in delivering educational content.

Of course, there will be challenges along the way. The intricate design requirements of edutainment products as well as teacher training may pose complications.

However, drawing from our extensive experience in developing similar projects, we can confidently say that this is not only achievable, but can entirely transform the benefits from the education process.

5. Continuous Education

Continuous Education

Today the lines between work, learning, and training are more blurred than ever, and 2024 is going to be all about a high demand for tools that let people enhance their skills and learn new ones. This presents an opportunity for companies and educational technology platforms to reconsider their approaches and maybe switch to personalized and lifelong educational solutions.

Micro-credentials, stackable degrees, and competency-based education are gaining momentum in online learning sphere, catering to the needs of diverse student populations, including working professionals, career changers, and lifelong learners.

Additionally, there is a growing demand for platforms that can support learners throughout their transition from students to workers to active retirees.

Investing in continuous learning has become crucial for organizations to retain and attract top talents too. Such a culture of continuous learning, where employees feel valued and motivated, is predicted to lead to improved performance and stronger teams of those companies that embrace the lifelong learning paradigm in 2024.

6. Growth of Mobile Learning

Growth of Mobile Learning

Attending lengthy training sessions during online learning has become a thing of the past, so in 2024 we can anticipate a surge in eLearning courses from EdTech companies optimized for mobile devices, transforming smartphones and tablets into self-sufficient portals of education.

Consequently, a crucial requirement arises: the need for cross-environment compatibility, which guarantees that interactive content can be accessed effortlessly across all devices.

7. Increased Demand for Analytics

Increased Demand for Analytics

There is a growing emphasis in 2024 on evaluating the effectiveness of every educational technology and solution used. Why? The answer couldn’t be simpler — the demand for quality education continues to rise. That’s why today every aspect that can impact the ultimate outcome is carefully scrutinized and assessed with Big Data analytics.

Such Big Data analytical tools allow educational platforms to gather and inspect vast amounts of information, uncovering patterns, trends, and correlations that may have previously gone unnoticed. Moreover, they enable educational platforms to track the performance of instructors, check usefulness of courses and the quality of content.
