The widespread diffusion of new digital technologies is ultimately leading to an increasing proliferation of online services. Education did not stand aside and now have appeared universities completely online.
But is this the only true way? In our session, we will cover the results of analysis of this topic at AUCA, namely the topics of the peculiarity and the exclusivity of higher education “offline”, in the form of individual face-to-face communication that we know, compare some aspects of online and “offline” education, consider the issues of the psychological perception of online education and those areas where online university services may be in demand. We will also consider some challenges facing higher education in the training of professionals in the digital era and methods for implementing these tasks.
It is expected that by the results of the session, participants will take away some ideas on an extension of their services in frames of the digital transformation of HEIs and HED itself based on experience and results of discussions at AUCA. Also, presenters will provide the list of questions that participants can use in their institutions to discuss these topics to reconsider the digital aspect of their services development path.
