written e-learning with graphs showing the growing trend for 2021

The growth prospects for 2021 in Italy in the e-learning sector are extremely positive, the Covid-19 pandemic has helped accelerate the country's digitization process in both the public and private sectors. During and after the lockdown, traditional face-to-face training underwent a significant downsizing and in some cases many companies in this sector no longer exist.

School teaching now takes place almost entirely online and this has helped to encourage the development of learning through the internet even of disciplines related to the world especially of the youngest but also of the average age group of the Italian population (music courses, language courses, acting courses, etc.).

As shown by a recent study by ansa, the main Italian news agency (, the Italian digital didactic offer for students is composed of 218 online didactic training courses in Italian, twice as many as the French offer, four times as many as the Greek one, data that bode well and that place the "Belpaese" in the European average, next to the German offer that consists of 220 courses and the Spanish one that reaches 260.

The disciplines most in demand and most taught are those of economics and science: information technology is positioned at 27.6% of the total offer of courses, economics and business organization represents 21%, in third and fourth place are, respectively, marketing and communication with 16.3% and courses related to school and training with 14.8%.

What is the trend of e-learning among Italian companies?

There is a growing interest also from companies, which are subject to many challenges: e-learning, in fact, addresses all business issues that concern cost reduction, technical updates, providing better access to information, and improving employees' skills.

In Italy too, e-learning is becoming a critical aspect for all organizations that aim to optimize the corporate workforce. In addition, e-learning represents a method for delivering cost-effective training programs anywhere, anytime. The possibility of planning multilingual online training is not only an advantage for multinational enterprises, even small and medium-sized companies can better manage their relationship with their customers by creating effective courses and thus saving, as in the case of software companies, on the high costs of training at the customer sites throughout Italy and abroad.

What characteristics should an Italian voice over have?

The qualities of an excellent Italian voice-over talent must necessarily include: clarity of exposition, a warm, professional and at the same time engaging tone of voice, the ability to synchronize one's voice with the video or with the original language, a dynamic narration that allows the listener to memorize the most important points of the course.

For an Italian voice over actor, it is extremely important to deliver quality work, offer flexibility and collaboration to the client, and guarantee the perfect execution of the voice over in the time agreed upon for delivery. In an increasingly competitive market, the Italian voice over plays a key role in terms of experience and reliability as well as in supporting the company in the process of localization of the course.
