Online tutoring collaborations engage millennials. 86% of colleges and universities have a presence on YouTube, according to the University of Dartmouth.
Universities in the US, Australia, UK and most of Europe that have the most beautiful campuses, state-of-the-art infrastructure and the most learned faculty are adopting online teaching and tutoring techniques. Why? Because millennials grew up in a tech-savvy environment and learnt quite a few of their skills or planned some of their prank ideas watching Youtube videos.
86% of colleges and universities have a presence on YouTube, according to the University of Dartmouth. There’s much hint in the recent development when Linked-in spent $ 1.5 billion in buying online tutoring website Lynda.com. Teaching sells. There’s no other reason why education or teaching happens to be the 2nd most sought out category of videos on Youtube. We had already told you how the growing user base of online collaborations is breaking geographical barriers

How big is online learning?
Industry insiders inform that in 2011, about $35.6 billion was spent on self-paced e-learning worldwide. In 2014, e-learning was a $56.2 billion industry, and that number was expected to double by the end of 2015. Education today represents 4.5 percent of global GDP. No wonder that more and more companies are entering the online tutoring and teaching collaboration industry. While startups are focusing on do-it-yourself tools, bigger enterprises are creating social networks for online education to be able to engage millenials who interact in the social networking way.
Technology is definitely changing the equation in the education industry. Take for instance, Dreambox makes learning more fun by using gamification technologies and immersive math courseware. The algorithms then adapt to the learning experience of the students. In addition, there’s Brilliant.org that permits talented mathematicians and physics students around the world to learn at their own pace. And let’s not forget the massive online open courses (MOOCs) that are today offering courses and education to those who have no access. A large portion of MOOCs utilize videos and online tutoring systems in real time.
Of course, what’s awaited at the moment is the next big online tutoring platform that would disrupt Youtube and Udemy. In the meantime, startups may come up with education social networking ideas in the field of online tutoring collaborations to create user-generated content for learning.
