Bengaluru: Edtech players are turning their focus on a hybrid model amid a slowing down in the sector after two years of hypergrowth as easing Covid-19 curbs and reopening of offline institutions make more students go back to traditional modes of learning.

Companies including PhysicsWallahByju’sImarticus LearningCuemathVedantu and Unacademy are all in the process of either expanding or building an offline presence.<br>

Edtech players say going hybrid is part of a natural transition as education transforms with the rise of digitisation and emerging technologies. While rapid adoption of online learning will continue, classroom programmes will enhance learning, student-teacher in-person interaction and project work, they said.<br>

“Students and parents have understood the comfort that online mode offers, hence a hybrid model is how edification will be accessed going forward,” said Alakh Pandey, founder of PhysicsWallah, which raised $100 million to become the country’s 101st unicorn earlier this week.
