Cost to Create High-Quality E-Learning Mobile App

India's e-learning education has skyrocketed over the past year. Among the various e-learning channels, learning via mobile app seems to be the preferred choice of Indian students.

According to Meritnation, an online learning platform, there is a 217% growth in students using education apps over the past year. The reason for this vast adoption is mobile applications are the easiest way to learn anything on-the-go.  

Now, due to the restrictions imposed on schools and colleges, the demand for education apps is sky-high. The time is ripe for creating an e-learning app. But, how much will it cost to create an e-learning app?

In this article, you will learn about the cost and factors involved in the e-learning app creation from a reputed Mobile Application Development Company in Noida.

Types of e-learning App

There are five types of e-learning apps:-

1. Courseware: These apps specifically run video courses. The videos are app-exclusive.

2. Classroom apps: In schools, these apps are used as learning aids.

3. Assessment Apps: Tests and quizzes to assess student’s knowledge are carried out in these apps.

4. Reference Apps: In these apps, content is for references only.

5. Specific Apps: These apps are for specific educational or tutoring purposes such as medical education.

Whatever is the app type, the primary purpose is to engage the student and make the learning process effortless.

Now, The Cost of Creating an E-learning App

Further, if you are developing the app in India, the cost will come down. In India, the average per hour price for app development is $25-$50.
