DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wsxbbb/online_continuing) has announced the addition of the "Online Continuing and Professional Learning - Market Size and Demand in the US" report to their offering.
The report Online Continuing and Professional Learning - Market Size and Demand in the US' discusses the total market size of online courses on further education and professional development - that are taken by people beyond school enrollment age to enhance their skill sets and career prospects.
It estimates the market size from the demand side, both in terms of volume and value (US$). It segregates the market size by major categories that demand the courses. It further estimates the demand for both free and paid online courses in continuing and professional learning.
The report also discusses the major trends in the US for online continuing and professional learning, along with the activities of major players.
Market size of online continuing and professional learning in terms of value is calculated by multiplying SOM by average ticket size of courses. Conversion ratios from SAM to SOM are calculated with the help of government data, as well as primary research interviews with course providers and marketplaces.
The market size is estimated by the demand of online courses and not the supply - due to the business model of online courses. The online courses are not specific to a particular geography, and can be taken by almost anyone having access to the internet and ability to understand language of the course. Therefore estimating the size through suppliers leads to an incorrect market landscape by a particular geography.
