Development of digital content: a major market driver
The development of digital content is one of the major factors driving the global classroom wearables technology market. The practice of online and blended learning methods has encouraged the development of advanced technologies to help content development. Schools and universities are constantly evolving and becoming increasingly sophisticated by harnessing advanced technologies. The introduction of LMS and content management systems in the market has augmented the development of content for academicians and education experts.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on education technology, “The advent of cloud-based LMS has given a thrust to the demand for digital classroom hardware. It is an inexpensive, quick, and efficient way of creating as well as delivering self-paced online courses to the learners. Learning management system vendors are making substantial investments in R&D to upgrade education systems.”
Apart from learning management systems, authoring software tools are also used in the content development processes. Thus, users in the education system depend on market vendors for the provision of hardware products such as wearable devices that provide a conducive platform to run this software and applications
