Gamification, personalization are trending in edtech

Gamification, personalization are trending in edtech | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Over the past several years we’ve seen the rise of the modern edtech industry. There have been massive investments in the space, and the success of these firms will dictate the future of the edtech landscape.

More successful exits (like Lynda) will help to propel the industry forward. Investments in the first generation of edtech have also made it difficult for the second generation of companies to attract investment, as investors have been watching this first cohort closely to gauge results.  

The trends that will shape the market over the next 3-5 years are mass customization, certification, and lifelong learning.
