Virtual Universities – Croatian Perspectives and Current Challenges

abstract | author | presentation

Bojan Mijatovic, Sveucilište u Zagrebu

The Croatian higher education (HE) space is highly disintegrated and heterogeneous. The current technologies including latest information technology (IT) developments could assist in promoting international standards in the HE system if this would be recognised by the relevant authorities and thus adequately supported. However, even if such a new component would be integrated into the development strategy of Croatian education, there remain many reasons that one might question how they will affect the actual implementation. The author brings out the positive and affirmative characteristics of the virtual education arena in Croatia and confronts them to the obvious obstacles and threats of the effective introduction of virtual education in Croatia, but possibly in the wider region as well.
