Online Education

The online education sector in Japan is a promising market due to both the Japanese tendency to embrace technology and the increasing interest in international engagement. Organisations engaged in distance learning are increasingly adapting to target an online audience. Institutions are also taking advantage of the possibilities provided by existing online learning platforms. Online English learning in particular is in demand due to Japanese companies’ increasing need to have English-speaking employees. The online potential for Japanese language instruction has also been recognised by the government as a means of encouraging more foreign engagement with Japan.
