Need for Improvement in Teaching Methodology to Create Opportunities for the Curriculum and Data Management Market in the US Through 2020, Reports Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio analysts forecast the curriculum and data management market in the US 2016-2020 to grow at a CAGR of close to 13% during the forecast period, according to their latest report.

The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the curriculum and data management market in the US for 2016-2020. The report also lists higher education institutes and K-12 schools as the two major end-user segments curriculum and data management. The higher education segment accounts for approximately 56% of the market and the K-12 segment accounts for the remaining 44% of the market share.

Technavio education analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the curriculum and data management market in the US:

  • Enables effective monitoring by education institutions
  • Improvement in teaching methodology
  • Enhances time management

Enables effective monitoring by education institutions

Curriculum and data management enables educational institutes to maintain a central control of curriculum mapping process while decentralizing content development authorities to individual functionalities. By using these tools, school and college authorities are able to review and approve the workflow of the process of content editing and the final sign off in an automated manner.

The software is known for easing the workload of designated staff members, who are responsible for designing, restructuring, reviewing, rejecting, and archiving all edits. In addition, it lets education institute authorities track active course proposals and progress through workflow approvals, and check if they meet the deadlines. The system is supported by e-mail notifications, which are sent to the person responsible for taking a desired action. All the edits and comments are recorded with color coding so as to ensure easy visibility of changes incorporated at each stage in the workflow.

Many schools and colleges are readily adopting curriculum and data management software. For instance, medical schools across North America and APAC have adopted curriculum management facilities of One45, which also offers program evaluation, clinical scheduling, and assessment. The company has helped over 25 medical schools and has successfully completed their data uploads for the AAMC Curriculum Inventory Initiative.

Improvement in teaching methodology

Curriculum management is most useful in helping schools and universities with high proportions of under-performing students, which show traces of knowledge gaps in the level of achievement of learning among educators. A curriculum management strategy can help in improving the situation by offering an in-depth knowledge of topics to the teachers so as to prepare them to meet the learners' requirements at classroom level.

Curriculum management tools go beyond content delivery and cater to the difficulties that may occur in the teaching methodology. By offering better assessment of how a student is responding to a class session, the curriculum and data management software enables teachers and education institutes to make positive changes in the classroom. As the software clearly defines the working and non-working elements in class, the software is believed to help students gain success.

For instance, build your own curriculum (BYOC), makes use of innovative technology in order to make the teaching and learning experience an evolving process. The idea behind this offering is to provide a software that is of value to teachers and is easy to use, readily accessible and aligned to the common district-wide curriculum. BYOC disables the need to recreate the curriculum from scratch for each course every year, thus allowing teachers to focus on teaching. However, once the curriculum has been designed, an option of continuous assessment and improvement is also made available.

Enhances time management

Time is the most essential aspect in reference to curriculum delivery and management. The allocation of time for teaching and imparting knowledge on a particular topic is useful in determining the total length of the course duration. Due to this reason, the effective planning of teaching and learning is of utmost importance. Moreover, linking time taken for task completion, such as particular chapter in a course structure, enables schools to monitor the learning methodologies in each class.

However, one of the challenges that mentors often faces is aligning their teaching time table with the stipulated schedule given by the school authorities. The evidence of this challenge is often visible in the quality of syllabus coverage done in a class. The ease in mentoring is often dependent on the response given by the set of students while learning a new topic. As each teacher teaches different set of students with varied grasping abilities, the degree of time taken in completion of a particular topic may vary. However, adoption of curriculum and data management tools, assesses the students’ performance after mapping the basic curriculum requirements of a course for each grade. This enables calculative decision-making in the allocation of time for a task and offers a systematic way of learning and minimizes the probability of ineffective learning of important topics.
