Today, the gap between the demand of professionals with digital skills and supply of such workforce is widening on a global scale. While conventional education may take 3-6 years, online courses offer solutions in the given situation much faster. There are many online education providers with quality content, but course completion rates are disappointingly low. Also, they don’t connect skilled students with potential employers. BitDegree is addressing the threefold problem with a gamified platform, economic incentives, and bridging the gap between talents and real employers.
