Hot Topics, a website that features new technology and enterprise has released its list of the top 100 most influential Edtech100 leaders. The website listed Dr. Eric Yang in Hot Topics Ed Tech100 2015 as one of the most influential Edtech leaders worldwide.

The article emphasized that individualization in education as a trend in the 21st century is not to be underestimated, and iTutorGroup has proven to be a leader in this field.
The article states the oft-quoted words of Marc Andreessen, a well-known American entrepreneur, who said “software is eating the world” when describing how advancements in technology are changing our lives.

Dr. Yang’s institution has since become one of the world’s largest online teaching institutions. iTutorGroup has proven to be a solid example of the above criteria.
