Our new reality is virtual. The digital transformation disrupts higher education, accelerated by the current COVID-19 pandemic. Universities are moving beyond online courses and are building fully online campuses using Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, big data and blockchain. To make optimal use of the opportunities that digitalisation grants our students and society, we need the EU.

ECIU proposes the following EU-actions:

  1. Support the set-up of virtual campuses that can compete with the educational o­fferings of big tech companies;
  2. Support the use of artificial intelligence and big data for the sake of fully personalized learning experiences;
  3. Support innovative digital tools to ensure a large scale deployment of immersive learning experiences;
  4. Support the implementation of innovative pedagogies
