Ilya Krasilnikov, the Vice-President for Digital Development, elaborated on the experience in individual education development at Moscow Poly. According to him, even a single change is either impossible or non-efficient without digital transformation.
“In the terms of one discipline, one professor and even one class different students receive new knowledge in different ways thanks to technologies. The most important thing for all of them is to acquire the necessary amount of knowledge they are ready to acquire this very moment and to enjoy the education process in the same time”, – says Ilya Krasilnikov.
In order to implement this scenery, we need digitalization: “Digital technologies can help to implement education personalization and ensure comfortable life of a university without heavy cost increases”.
The Vice-President also paid attention to students themselves: “Our students seek for digitalization, as it is a basic need for them”.
Ilya Krasilnikov concluded: “Small points on standalone basis won’t make a difference, but they are really efficient altogether. Life won’t become easier, but our professors feel comfortable to use new things. It means that these professors and their efforts have made something more possible”.
