Online Learning in 2020: How Construct Education Met an Unprecedented Surge in Demand

In January of this year, the online program designer Construct Education was coming off a period of strong growth. The company had seen roughly 500% growth in their business between 2018 and 2019. It had no idea that online learning in 2020 was about to grow even faster.

“We never thought anything like this would happen,” said Construct Chief Learning Officer Michael Atkinson, in reference to the outbreak of Covid-19. “We didn’t have any sort of contingency plans to deal with it.”

Over the course of the year, the company grew even more aggressively, hiring more staff and signing new clients.
