SuperBook Concept for a Digital University
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.
