“By 2017, ten countries in Asia will be spending more on Mobile Learning than on eLearning,” comments CEO Tyson Greer.

“We call this the leapfrog effect. Buyers in Asia are not substituting Mobile Learning for eLearning, they are leapfrogging eLearning altogether. We see this happening in Africa as well.”

The five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is 22.7% and revenues will reach $9.1 billion by 2015.
