Company Connecting Infographic: E-Learning, Training and Education

Original publication of infographic based on Company Connecting data: this time on Scottish E-Learning, Training and Education.

One of the fastest growing areas in IT and tech, E-Learning, Training & Education is a wide field made up of diverse skills.

The scale of the E-learning industry is widely recognised, but to understand the details of the mix of companies that make up this industry in Scotland it is essential to look at the Company Connecting Scottish E-Learning, Training & Education Infographic. This was created using Company Connecting data, the only comprehensive collection of data on all IT companies in Scotland; and therefore the information in the Company Connecting infographic cannot be found anywhere else.

This week we sat down with Kate Stevenson of Scottish Augmented Reality firm Ariis AR to talk about her perception of the industry and the future of the technology
