Engaging with Edtech in 2023

Having spent the last two years working with the sector and understanding their needs around the edtech market; we have learnt that a big priority for our members is to have access to insightful information about this market. There has been an incredible number of changes since 2020 and we aim to make sense of it all for our members and deliver it directly to your inbox.

Our Engaging with Edtech series of reports and supporting blog posts aims to provide an analysis of what is currently happening in the sector, future edtech trends and developments across this complicated market. The idea is to help our members have access to global edtech insights, what is hot and why, detect early signs of change and how this could potentially impact the Higher Education Sector. There is no doubt that edtech will remain at the forefront of learning throughout 2023. One of the biggest priorities for institutions is to evaluate the use of the tech they have already invested in and determine what works and what doesn’t. We imagine that once this tech inventory has taken place, universities will look to integrate these tools as much as possible and focus on products that clearly demonstrate positive outcomes for students. From new start ups on the scene to developments in Learning Management Systems, we aim to do all the research for you
