How much Russians spend on online courses
Courses for schoolchildren have become the driver of online education in Russia, SberIndex experts said when analyzing spending in this segment. When the schools were on lockdown, the number of customers paying for such services increased significantly.
The courses on beauty and psychology have drawn a lot of attention over the past few months, while educational programs for professional development are much less popular.
The number of Sberbank customers paying for online educational services has doubled since the beginning of the lockdown in April this year. Then analysts registered a gradual decline that lasted until the end of the summer. However, interest in such courses and seminars began to grow again in August, mainly due to venues for children and schoolchildren.
