Technological Opportunities in Russia's Higher Education Sector
9
2017
Today the higher education sector is undergoing times of radical changes. For an extended period this sector decoupled from various societal changes, which is why it acquired a reputation for being a very conservative sector of activity. However, the situation has been changing quickly now. The near future will see a sequence of the changes that will redefine the way we think about tertiary education.

The main trigger for these changes comes from teaching-related technologies such as distance training, educational platforms like massive open online courses, virtual reality, etc., some of which are already being extensively used in the educational environment.

This work describes the impact of these technologies in higher education and studies the impact on its direct socio-economic environment. The main interest of this paper is to gain a better understanding of kinds of new teaching-related technologies that are now emerging in the higher-education sector of Russia and how they will influence the learning environment and the quality of higher education. Furthermore, these technological developments are discussed against the commercial opportunities. This study builds on surveys and discussions with leading experts and practitioners in the field of higher education, advanced educational technology, and other relevant areas. It also incorporated the experience of educational experiments, in which the author was personally involved.

The results of the study addresses both educational professionals and policy makers alike in Russia and the rest of the world.
