The nationwide lockdown in March 2020 led to edtech’s stellar rise—in startups as well as users. That year, edtech startups in India raised a record $2.2 billion, with the momentum spilling over to 2021 as well.

However, with offline education institutions reopening once again, online-first edtech startups are reinventing themselves by moving to a hybrid model.

Last year, BYJU'S launched 37 offline centres across Tier I and II cities to cater to students from Classes 4 to 10. This year, the edtech giant plans to launch 500 more across 200 cities.

Unacademy too launched Unacademy Centres to offer offline classes for competitive exams, as well as foundation courses for high school students. In fact, even Vedantu is allegedly moving to a hybrid model.
