Emerging issues and challenges in digitalisation of higher education
“Technology can become the 'wings' that will allow the educational world to fly farther and faster than ever before; if we will allow it
Traditionally education is centred on sources such as schools, teachers and print media. The learners reached the information sources by enrolling with schools, teachers and libraries. Prior to the digital era, information was not accessible by the majority of people, and even those accessed were unable to obtain current information with respect to today’s context. The modern society wants to know the information as it happens and when it happens, and the world is moving from an information society to a knowledge society. Thus education is given the highest priority and brainpower is becoming the most valuable asset of an organisation. Digital learning is increasingly influencing both classroom/campus-based teaching but more important is leading to new models or designs for teaching and learning Advances in digital technology have opened up many avenues of learning. Technology has made information accessible/transmittable from anywhere and by/to all groups of people. Education has reached most parts of the world and ICT has become an integral part of human life. This paper describes the emerging trends in digitalisation and challenges faced by the digital education.
