Pandemic Drives Career Shifts - Dian Schaffhauser, Campus Technology

Quizlet, an education technology company that produces study tools by the same name, analyzed data pulled in June 2021 from its platform. Quizlet said it has some 60 million users, including students, teachers and faculty members, and others who are studying any number of topics. In 2020 during the recession, the GMAT, the entrance exam for business school, saw a rise in related studying 48 percent higher than 2019. Similarly, studying related to information technology certification increased as well. Over that same period, interest levels in healthcare careers rose.  Child development was another area of study that saw pickup, increasing by 56 percent in 2020 compared to the previous year. "The pandemic has amplified the importance of self-learning resources needed for students to not only counter learning gaps, but also to encourage and support their long-term career goals," said Amanda Baker, director of data analytics at Quizlet, in a press release.
