The number of students taking free courses is around 1.15 million. The number of paying students is much less, but it is increasing quite a bit. I think we are entering an age of life-long learning which means as new technologies come, AI in particular, people will be forced to upskill themselves. However, globally we are way into the AI revolution already and I don’t see job losses today. I think it’s a myth. The people who claim job losses assume that jobs don’t change at all and they will be automated. But they miss the new jobs being created. But education is key. In the past, we assumed a single education is enough for your life.
