Education sector in the Caribbean Region
The Caribbean is a conglomerate of various cultures, languages, and people, with several well-known commercial businesses in the financial, tourism, and agricultural industries. Primary, secondary, and tertiary education institutions are nestled within the picturesque and beautiful landscapes of many Caribbean islands. Within the Eastern Caribbean are educational institutions of higher learning where several arts and sciences are taught to local and international students, the most well-known of which is the University of the West Indies that has established campuses in Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago. The Caribbean has great potential to expand the primary industries that drive many of its islands' economies through digitization. Jeremy considers e-learning as an academic approach that can supply Caribbean nationals and residents with the skills and knowledge needed to aid in the socio-economic development of their respective countries.
