Rising tuition rates, the pandemic and the emergence of online courses have all influenced students’ decisions when considering a higher education programme.
The creator economy on the other hand, which is used to describe growing number of independent content creators, has been booming. The global creator market was estimated to be around S$19 billion in 2021 alone (Source – https://www.channelnewsasia.com/advertorial/growing-s19-billion-market-thats-driving-creator-economy-2839326) .
As the creator economy grows, its power to serve as an educator has become increasingly apparent. Content creators are educating followers on not only how to become content creators themselves but also on skills necessary for jobs outside of the creator economy.
Join us in this fireside chat and hear from industry practitioners and content creators including Nusier Yassin, founder of Nas Daily as they share their views on how the creator economy is changing education in Singapore.
