“We are very happy that our fourth report generated such great responses and participation from within the industry,” said Karen Billings, vice president and managing director of ETIN-SIIA. “The results from this year’s survey also show the steady and encouraging growth in the ed stech industry.”

Data in the report was collected directly from 144 service providers and publishers to show a supply-side view of the market not available through traditional customer data collection techniques.
