While large economies like the US are already ahead in such disruptive cycles in business and technology by making strategic investments in cloud-based authoring tools and e-learning platforms, India has a long way to go. Our motive is to support the country to rise to the same level as the developed nations and help businesses improve their competitiveness. By partnering with iSpring we will be giving our clients access to high-quality e-learning tools and will also assist them in making purchases, delivery, training, and support of iSpring products.”

The sector is expected to reach $1.29 billion by 2018, growing at 17% CAGR. This is expected to be faster than the global growth by a factor of 2x. This strategic alliance between Courseplay and iSpring Solutions is just one of the many endeavors to bring promising changes in the country’s current e-learning system so that more number of Indian companies are able to secure a position in the Global Fortune 500 list by the next decade.
