Description

The crisis caused by Covid-19 that started in February and March of 2020 in Europe, has highlighted the needs of institutions and businesses, both in public and private sectors for decentralization of business and administrative operations, and the need to embrace digital solutions. It has shown us the glaring gap in digitalization overall, and lack of digital alternatives. The Government of the Republic of Kosovo, like most other Governments in the world, had implemented preventive measures to combat the spreed of the disease. These measures unfortunately had as side effects a steep drop in economic and social activities. Education was and still is at the center of attention in almost all countries in Europe and the world. Educational institutions with few exceptions weren’t ready for any kind of prolonged crisis and disruption in operations. A need for legal overhaul of laws and regulations that have prevented a digital solution and and put staff and students in risk needs to be considered. Digital training for both staff and students, a clear digitalization strategy is needed. In this paper the problems and possible solutions will be presented for academic\educational institutions.
