According to the 2019 report on trends in online education, 69% of online students identified employment as their main objective to enter a program.

Other potential technical issues include slow internet connection, specific browser requirements, and poor device compatibility. Therefore, low motivation and low commitment to adopt LMS solutions can delay market growth.
