RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

Volume of online continuing and professional learning consists of the number of students who are enrolled, or are expected to get enrolled in at least one of the courses falling under the category.

The volume is estimated as per the following definitions:
• Serviceable Available Market (SAM) — it represents the number of students that have enrolled, or are expected to enroll in at least one of the courses.
• Serviceable Obtainable Market (SOM) — it represents number of students that are expected to complete the online courses and pay for them.

Market size of online continuing and professional learning in terms of value is calculated by multiplying SOM by average ticket size of courses. Conversion ratios from SAM to SOM are calculated with the help of government data, as well as primary research interviews with course providers and marketplaces.

The market size is estimated by the demand of online courses and not the supply — due to the business model of online courses. The online courses are not specific to a particular geography, and can be taken by almost anyone having access to the internet and ability to understand language of the course. Therefore estimating the size through suppliers leads to an incorrect market landscape by a particular geography.
