About the Book

“It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change”.


While another maleficent pandemic deeply marks the world, closing frontiers and pushing millions and millions of people to limitations, restricting our freedom, applying rules for social distancing and limiting our potential to the walls of our homes, the digital transformation is overtaking the globe and becoming essential part of our lives, businesses, communications and education.

The majority of the populations has never experienced any similar times. Yet, here we are counting positive cases day by day, limiting our travels, sustaining our activities, avoiding networking, and trying to adopt to the new reality that desperately recalls Darwin’s famous quote on evolution. And today’s evolution is themed as the 4th technological revolution.

As students, researchers and teachers, we are part of the 4th technological revolution and amazingly exited we do enjoy the glory of being alive in these incredibly dynamic times of global digital transformation that is severely affecting the education system. But little do we know about education during times of threatening pandemics. Heavily relied on technology, within few weeks / months we turned into Zoom, Teams, Meets, Skype, Hybrid learning, Flipped Learning, Rotations, classroom redesign, gamified learning environment. On the other hand, this pandemic has 4 layers: health, economic, psychological and social. And all four are affecting the international education system.

Indeed, there has never been better times for the world to exchange know-how for the better of everyone. This eBook, The Impact of COVID-19 on the International Education System is a serial of multidisciplinary chapters from international authors offering wide range of research findings from pedagogical and technological aspects of the education systems and institutions coping with global pandemic. From teacher’s adoptability, low income countries struggle with higher education during the pandemic, the widening disparity gap to applicable insides of tech devices and tools used in online and hybrid teaching, the readers will find incredible solutions and methods applied just recently, and even more important –  ready to be applied in the post-Covid times. This book also focuses to teaching methods applied in times of pandemic that should improve the teaching experience, facilitate learning and balance the general pessimism so that the students across the world can engage effectively.

The eBook is rich and very helpful recourse for professors, students, researchers, pedagogical experts as well as everyone who is passionate about education. Assembling 16 chapters written by authors from different parts of the globe, this eBook offers fresh, impactful and much needed content for the readers.

No book till now has ever explained how to harness the power of technology for the benefit of higher education during global pandemic. I am amazingly grateful to the authors for their contribution to this eBook and for the benefit to the international education system in these unprecedented times, proving that the evolution is not solely based on technological progress, but rather on human and social.
