Description

Over the last 20 years, in context of higher education the potential of digital media has been recognised in order to facilitate learning. Nevertheless, digital learning formats are still applied rather optionally. In the present work, we examined how, where and when Mongolian students learn in the context of digitalisation and which constraints they face during this process. Through a survey among 233 Mongolian students and an on-site non-participatory observation, different conclusions can be drawn. Major findings indicate a high digital tool awareness among students, revealing a desire for applicable skills and lessons thereof. Videos represent an additional medium in higher education preferred by students. The learning environment in Ulaanbaatar provides distinct learning constraints, primarily with a financially and logistically nature. In the ongoing research process, our results will be used for a German comparative study in order to gain an intercultural perspective of digital learning approaches.

Student Learning Behaviour in the Digital Age

Over the last 20 years, in context of higher education the potential of digital media has been recognised in order to facilitate learning. Nevertheless, digital learning formats are still applied rather optionally. In the present work, we examined how, where and when Mongolian students learn in the context of digitalisation and which constraints they face during this process. Through a survey among 233 Mongolian students and an on-site non-participatory observation, different conclusions can be drawn. Major findings indicate a high digital tool awareness among students, revealing a desire for applicable skills and lessons thereof. Videos represent an additional medium in higher education preferred by students. The learning environment in Ulaanbaatar provides distinct learning constraints, primarily with a financially and logistically nature. In the ongoing research process, our results will be used for a German comparative study in order to gain an intercultural perspective of digital learning approaches.
