Digitalization of higher education: Issues and challenges
Use of technology in education is not a recent trend. It has been gradually taking over. Today there are unprecedented institutes and students in the world, completely depending upon the digital support in developed countries. Although, the developing nations are also following the same path, yet there are some unavoidable issues which need to be resolved. Some research studies, surveys and reports have also been reviewed to gain a deeper insight of these issues and challenges coming in the way of digitalization of higher education. Some of these issues are directly related to the educators i.e. lack of digital literacy and resistance to change. Some others are linked with students, content and infrastructure like lack of equal access to digital support, development of quality content and lack of funds to build and maintain the required quality infrastructure. These challenges need a serious consideration because avoiding the digitalization will risk the speed of development and prosperity of the concerned country. Resolving these issues will open the new horizons for the students, teachers and the whole nation. Some suggestions and solutions are also given to promote the efficiency and proper implementation of digitalization in higher education in India.
