The accommodation of learning needs for all types of students, easy repetition of any lecture, access to updated and real-time content, and hassle-free tuition delivery are some of the many advantages of adopting e-learning methodology in the South American market. The increasing mobility of human capital in industries, including tourism, trade, media, international relations, and science and technology, is creating a demand for these services in the South American market. South America is leading the pack when it comes to adopting mobile technology. High mobile technology and internet penetration in the region make it a perfect place for e-learning businesses to thrive. As of 2017, more than 415 million people out of a population of over 690 million were connected to a mobile network in the region. Approximately 60% of all of the cellular connections are accounted for by smart-phones, which opens all kinds of business opportunities for e-educators. The mass-market adoption of smart-phones in South America has surged dramatically over the last few years because of the subsidies, payment installments, and financing options offered by local mobile companies. High penetration of mobile technology is also seen as a promising development when it comes to rural areas with a lack of wire connections. Often overlooked by e-commerce entrepreneurs, rural areas with mobile telephony can be a goldmine for online educators. Governments and start-ups are stepping up to meet the challenge, delivering learning programs and overcoming the region's connectivity issues. South America is one of the most unequal regions in the world. Three-quarters of South Americans are categorized as low or lower-middle-income, with 30% living below the poverty line. Though many countries in the region have made significant strides towards lowering income inequality in the past few years, the richest deciles of South Americans still owns 71% of the region’s wealth.

COVID-19 Impacts: In South America, more than 154 million children, or about 95% of the enrolled students, are temporarily out of school owing to COVID-19. School closures can have a significant impact on children’s education, as well as their health, well-being and safety, and the situation is likely to worsen as isolation measures heighten risks in the home. School closures expose the region’s significant digital divide, or the gap between those who have internet access and those with limited or no access. While students in more developed countries—and primarily in big cities—have moved to online instruction, the reality is that digital education is not an option for everyone. 67% of South America’s population uses the internet, but there are drastic differences between countries. In countries that are considered "well-connected", internet penetration in rural areas still only reaches 40–50% of the population; in poorly-connected countries that number drops to an average of 10%. While some governments have been quick to take action and help ensure students have a way to receive educational materials, there are still significant gaps. Innovative approaches are needed to overcome the challenges of connectivity and guarantee access to education for the region’s most vulnerable populations.
