Abstract—Today, the practical application of digitalisation
in higher education and finding ways to optimize the use of
digital technologies to improve the management of the
educational process is a relevant issue for the modern research
paradigm. This research aims to study the unique ways in
which digital technologies are utilised in higher education and
create a conceptual framework for their adoption to enhance
the efficiency of the educational process. The study applied the
method of expert assessments using a semi-structured
questionnaire, with two groups of respondents acting as experts.
The questionnaire responses were evaluated using the Likert
scale, and the Student’s t-test was used for statistical analysis of
the research results. Both students and teachers recognise
blended learning as the most effective method for organising the
educational process since it combines traditional distance
learning with the implementation of digital educational
technologies. The respondents recognised the communicational
aspect to be the most crucial advantage of digitalisation. The
study findings are summarised into a conceptual model of
digitalisation in higher education, comprising interconnected
semantic blocks of generation, accumulation, and management
of educational information.
