The 3 Most Common Types of E-learning Tenders

Published18th May 2022 AuthorJohn Hudson

As a direct result of Covid-19, there has been a 33% increase in the demand for E-Learning services since 2019

By 2025, the e-learning industry is expected to grow in the UK by £8 billion. Getting ahead of this and increasing your opportunities now will put you in a better position for the future.

So, if you are looking for e-learning tenders, then finding the right type for you is a good starting point.

In this blog, we take a look at the three most common types of e-learning there is. Looking at what is involved with these types, so you can see what best suits you.

Looking back on the past two years, you will see there was a dramatic shift in the way people learn. This is because the Covid-19 pandemic brought about an unexpected change.

People had to adapt to a new way of learning, which created the need for e-learning platforms. As a result of this, e-learning tenders have also been on the rise. The new way of learning is here to stay. Now, more than ever, companies are looking for their own e-learning systems. You need to decide where you fit into this.

The 3 most common types of e-learning tenders are:

  1. Fixed e-learning tenders

Fixed e-learning is a structured system that doesn’t change. This means it is not adaptable to fit each user’s needs. It won’t change and will only be used for one purpose. E-learning tenders for this type of system will usually involve educational facilities or libraries. For example, a school could need an e-learning service that students can use to access reading materials. The content on the system won’t change, and its purpose is for one thing only. For students to search and read the content.

  1. Adaptive e-learning tenders

Quite literally, the e-learning platform ‘adapts’ to suit each user and their needs. There will be algorithms involved that will learn how the user interacts with the e-learning, adjusting the content to suit. This could be down to the way they use search terms or their learning abilities.

  1. Interactive and collaborative e-learning tenders

Much like adaptive e-learning, but with added communication systems. For example, a facility may require an e-learning system that allows them to give feedback or arrange virtual meetings. There could also be a need for a student forum, or an interactive grading system.

A good example of this type of e-learning is Kahoot. It is an interactive e-learning system that peers can use together.

Let’s summarise

These are the three most common types of e-learning tenders that you will find:

  1. Fixed e-learning
  2. Adaptive e-learning
  3. Interactive and collaborative e-learning.

Understanding the common types of e-learning that go out to tender puts you in a better position to win tenders. You know what your e-learning services can do, therefore, you can ensure this is thoroughly explained to the buyer.

Buyers will want to see how your e-learning platform will benefit them. You may also find that your e-learning services can be used for each of the different types of tenders. If so, use this to your advantage. Show the buyer how your e-learning works and what makes it stand out from the others.
