The main problems of digitalization of education are identified: the increased volume of teachers’ workload, technical problems, methodological problems, motivation and involvement of students, digital competence of all the parties involved in the educational process. The prospects for the development of digitalization at the university are outlined.

All this inevitably leads to a change in traditional forms and methods of teaching, requirements for teachers and students, the expansion of project activities of students and remote additional education for children, the awareness of digital culture, psychological preparation for distance learning.
