Due to this, fewer experienced teachers who can adapt well to the gamification technology are given opportunities. But then, this directly affects the quality of education. This factor is a huge hindrance to the growth of the education gamification market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Education Gamification Market

However, in terms of edtech and gamified education, it has brought a boom in the industry. Several leading edtech companies were present during the pre-COVID period as well. However, all these companies, big or small, have witnessed a sudden boom in their revenue because of the pandemic. This is because schools, universities, coaching centers, cram schools, etc., were closed down following the norms of the pandemic to prevent crowding and spreading of the virus. Due to this, education institutions across the globe shifted to online classes.
