Abstract. Background: Digital content is a key part of a Digital University, which is becoming more relevant to meet the requirements of the digital world. Traditional universities should in fact “reinvent themselves”: they need to switch quickly from the usual focus on managing the learning process (program portfolio) to managing the educatinal experience of the target audience, whose expectations of the personalized, adaptive and 24/7 format of interaction with the learning system become more natural. Design/Methodology: Transformation affects organiza-tion, processes, people, including educational content and the ways to present it. The paper reviews the key aspects of a digital university with the main focus on digital educational content and explores different perspectives of the digital content. Objective: This paper outlines the generalized model of the digital education and suggests the application of a digital platform for the innovative educational purposes by the example of the idea of the digital “SuperBook” press. Results: The authors of the paper propose the concept of an innovative SuperBook web-service, which can be used on the basis of a digital university and can provide great opportunities to students to use digital content. Conclusion: The research gives a better insight in transformation process of the educational content. This research can be used as a basis for further transformation to a digital university. An analysis of the current trends of the digital university and the research of the interested parties showed that the SuperBook technology platform will be in demand in the academic field.

Purpose. The purpose of this work is the development and testing of a program for assessing the effectiveness of training for employees of a consulting organization. Design. The first stage aimed to study the parameters of effective training (contextual part of the model). On the second stage to develop on the basis of selected parameters the methodology for assessing the effectiveness of training at several levels. There are: affective, cognitive, behavioral (hierarchical part of the model). approbation of the methodology for evaluating the effectiveness of training and determining its validity. Methods. We used semi-structured interview, moderation sessions, survey, and testing. Processing of the results was performed using the method of content analysis, statistical processing was performed using SPSS. Sample: employees of consulting company N, the total number of 201 people. Results. A contextualhierarchical model for evaluating the effectiveness of training was developed. Parameters of effective training for employees of a consulting company were identified. A methodology for evaluating the effectiveness of training by a consulting company, including three blocks, was developed and tested. Recommendations on the application of this technique in further work were given to the customer. Application: The developed methodology can be used to assess the effectiveness of training in consulting companies. Limitation: the methodology was created for the consulting company however the created assessment model and recommendations may be useful to developers of similar instruments in companies with different profile
This article traces the evolution of the debate on the balancing of federal and regional competences in regulating the use of minority languages in Russia’s education system. Taking into account relevant law and judicial practice, as well as developments in center-periphery relations since 2017, the article argues that the federal center has been increasingly depriving Russia’s republics of the ability to self-regulate in the education sphere – particularly over the question as to whether they may require the compulsory study of republican languages (recognized as co-official with Russian) in schools located within their administrative borders. These processes can be located in the context of the centralization of the education system and a corresponding reduction of multilingualism in Russia’s schools. This can, in turn, be seen as part of an underlying drive to promote national unity through uniformity, through the dilution of the country’s linguistic and cultural diversity and a concurrent emphasis on the primacy of the Russian language. The article further argues that the Russian education system’s centralization has been ongoing: while it has intensified since 2017, the trajectory of the jurisprudence shows an earlier movement towards a concern for ‘unity’ that anticipated it.
Evolutionary education: an example from Russia

This article describes the dynamic optimization model with human capital as a group educational characteristic (along with these groups population) and as the main factor of their production. The main feature of this model is inequality in qualification which leads towards the run for the middle as unlinear dynamics of educational effectiveness for different groups. The research of the simulation model in one specific regime allowed to describe two different scenarios. They include the development of the groups and run for the middle dynamics. These results allow stating conceptual usability of the model for real society dynamics description.
Institutions affect investment decisions, including investments in human capital. Hence institutions are relevant for the allocation of talent. Good market-supporting institutions attract talent to productive value-creating activities, whereas poor ones raise the appeal of rent-seeking. We propose a theoretical model that predicts that more talented individuals are particularly sensitive in their career choices to the quality of institutions, and test these predictions on a sample of around 95 countries of the world. We find a strong positive association between the quality of institutions and graduation of college and university students in science, and an even stronger negative correlation with graduation in law. Our findings are robust to various specifications of empirical models, including smaller samples of former colonies and transition countries. The quality of human capital makes the distinction between educational choices under strong and weak institutions particularly sharp. We show that the allocation of talent is an important link between institutions and growth.
