The virtual schools market in North America to grow at a CAGR of 12.82% during the period 2017-2021.

The report, Virtual Schools Market in North America 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the Key vendors operating in this market.

One trend in the market is the increased demand for distance learning. Distance learning offers opportunities to people who have issues related to finance, geography, and scheduling classes and find it difficult to attend university. Most distance education content is delivered online or in a packaged form of books and CDs. However, virtual schools help in delivering content in a synchronous environment; hence are gradually taking over other traditional modes.

According to the report, one driver in the market is the increase in online content development and digitalization. E-learning course providers are creating and delivering content based on the availability of new and unique technological tools such as LMS and LCMS. LMS is a software that is used to share study materials online. LCMS is used to create, manage, and deliver e-learning content to users. They have become a critical part of any educational institution that has online education or training systems. With the centralized learning system provided by an LMS, institutions can offer learners with a wide variety of learning content.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is the rise in non-profit institutions. Education Management Organizations (EMO) that operate for-profit virtual schools are facing competition from non-profit EMO. Many students are being enrolled into the schools managed by non-profit EMO as these institutions offer virtual education, free of cost. In 2013, over 50% of the full-time virtual schools were operated by non-profit EMO and had enrolled an average of 350 students in an academic year.
