Digitization of higher education: A great change in teaching, learning trends
Higher education has undergone a major transformation in recent years which includes increasing internationalization and student mobility; the increasing supply of online and blended learning; and a rise in internet services in all countries. All of these issues bring with them the need to improve and guarantee quality and recognition and call for innovative measures by governments and institutions which also address equity and access. The wealth of digital educational resources has made new demands on higher education systems and institutions which include developing innovative curricula, study programmes and alternative learning pathways, and routes to higher learning, all facilitated by online, distance, open education, blended learning delivery models and short skills-based courses such as Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) and Open Education Resources (OERs) The potential of online learning in general, and in particular in the form of MOOCs, is enormous and builds new paths to higher education as well as expanding lifelong learning opportunities. It also helps to reduce individual and institutional educational costs by offering flexible alternatives. This paper focus on the digital capabilities for higher education, what are the dominant trends in digitization of higher education and the challenges towards digital education.
