The digitization phenomena characterised by new technologies innovated out of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is shaping 21st century in many ways. According to World Economic Forum report on Understanding the Impact of Digitization on Society, digital transformations brought by new technologies have significant impact on our society and many aspects of our lives have been transformed by these technologies. However, this transformation demands digital skills and competencies necessary to exploit the development potential of existing and emerging digital technologies (UN Commission on Science and Technology for Development Report). Higher learning and research institutions (HERIs) are key stakeholders in providing every citizen with skills and competencies required for working and living in the ever-changing digital world. To this effect, well-paced digital transformation in the teaching, learning and research processes is inevitable and should be focused towards the needs of sustainable development and individual fulfilment of digital economy.
