Survey shows positive attitudes toward EdTech.

To understand how digital transformation is progressing around the world, D2L conducted a survey of 4,830 higher education participants in 11 specific roles within education in the following markets: Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, UK, Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg), South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Singapore, India, and the Philippines.

The survey shows positive attitudes toward education technology in all parts of the world and it was not different for South Africa, the UK, and Benelux in EMEA. Most survey respondents believe that:

  • A blended learning model offers educational benefits above and beyond solely face-to-face (83 per cent in South Africa, 70 per cent in UK, and 64 per cent in Benelux)
  • Technological developments enhance the quality of higher education (89 per cent in South Africa, 81 per cent in UK, and 63 per cent in Benelux)
  • Institutions need to digitally transform to enable future growth (92 per cent in South Africa, 85 per cent in UK, and 62 per cent in Benelux)

Institutions have accepted the importance and benefits of digital transformation and have accelerated programmes that were already being implemented or planned.
