WHY STUDY IN ISRAEL


Creating the future of education


The Covid-19 pandemic has shown the importance of technology-enhanced teaching and learning. Higher education institutions across Israel are ahead of the curve


When it comes to our changing world, the Israeli higher education system is not one to rest on its laurels. The country has its gaze firmly on digital learning — something that’s been gearing up for a global rollout over the past decade. The Covid-19 pandemic has now accelerated its boom. Online education can foster innovation in


teaching and learning and promote international cooperation in the classroom, and people are starting to fully appreciate the format’s advantages — for students, faculty, the international audience as well as anyone interested in furthering their education over the course of their lives. Flexibility with time and place, for example, is a huge benefit: students, whatever their age or location, can arrange their studying to fit their own schedules — something that has the potential to increase accessibility to higher education and bolster internationalization within the sector.


Advancing digital learning Digital learning is a central priority for Israel’s higher education strategy, as defined by the

Council for Higher Education. As a first step, two main projects have been set up to showcase top-quality courses from Israeli institutions on an international and national arena. One, using the IsraelX platform on edx.org, allows people from all over the world to partake in Israeli academia. Within the country, meanwhile, the Campus IL platform gives people from all walks of life access to education in Hebrew, English and Arabic. There are already dozens of digital curses provided by universities and colleges on both platforms, with even more under development — all of which were designed with components that are open and accessible to all. It’s clear that teaching and learning have


undergone radical changes due to the Covid-19 outbreak. And while this new reality brings challenges, it also creates new opportunities. With support from the Council for Higher Education, higher education institutions across Israel are currently upgrading their digital learning facilities, aiming to enable all students to experience the advantages digital learning can provide to academic quality and inclusion.
