Background & Aims: Today, the spread of the Corona virus has created significant changes in the nature and function of higher education, especially universities, which the digital university, the evolutionary path approach of the university and higher education centers are facing. It starts with the Corona crisis and after that. The emergence of the Covid-19 virus and its epidemic at the beginning of 2020 and in the last months of 2018 led to fundamental changes in the higher education programs of the world and Iran. According to the statistics of the International Union of Universities, since the global spread of the Corona virus, 146 countries have closed their education in all academic levels (59 percent), and in some areas, education has been active in a limited way (30 percent), and 10 percent are in difficult conditions. Burundi has continued its normal activities, among them 67% of universities in the world have used electronic education, 24% did not have proper infrastructure and the rest of the universities were also closed. Based on this, today and in the digital era, it is essential that the maturity of universities and higher education centers aligns itself with these developments and can make the most of the technological capacities of the new era to realize the goals of higher education. It has been discussed, but the digital university has not been examined in the form of a coherent model, and the existing researches have mostly focused on the learning aspect and few components of the digital university. A digital university is an organization that needs to pay attention to its key dimensions so that it can take advantage of the capacities of the present era and bring itself to a principled and planned adaptation. Therefore, the general goal of the current research was to identify the factors affecting the provision of digital universities during the corona pandemic and post-corona in medical sciences universities.
Methods: The purpose of this research is practical, which was carried out with a mixed approach (qualitative and quantitative) with an exploratory design. In the qualitative approach, the Delphi method was used in two rounds, and in the quantitative approach, as it examined the existing situation, a descriptive survey method was used. In the qualitative part, the statistical population was 25 professors of the major medical sciences universities of the first region who had a doctorate degree, more than 10 years of teaching experience and the scientific rank of associate professor and above, and in the quantitative part, the directors and assistant professors (senior experts) of the faculties. , department managers and faculty members of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences numbering 1851, in the qualitative part using the purposeful sampling method and considering the saturation law, 14 people were selected as a statistical sample, and in the quantitative part based on the formula Cochran at 95% confidence level and α=5% measurement error, 320 people were selected as a statistical sample by stratified random sampling method. In order to collect data, a researcher's questionnaire made by Digital University was used.
Results: The results showed that among the different dimensions of the Debjebatal University questionnaire, it should be mentioned that the "university culture" dimension has the highest rank with an average rating of 4.56. Comparing the average ratings shows that the most important features or dimensions in the second and third place are "educational content and curriculum" and the average rating of these dimensions is 50.4 and 2.4, respectively. Teaching and learning methods are in the fourth place with a value of 19.4, human resources and educational infrastructure are in the fifth place with a value of 65.3, and university policy is in the sixth place with a value of 24.3.
Conclusion: Based on the findings of the research, in order to improve the main components of research in higher health education centers and to help the officials and managers of higher education in the country's health sector, to formulate long-term strategies for the effect of competence on scientific authority, in higher health education centers, it is one of the practical consequences of this research. . In this study, the aim of the professors of the University of Medical Sciences is to familiarize the professors with the category of digital university and the need to pay attention to it as a platform to achieve this goal, to play a role in the realization of a good life for the individual and the society, in an appropriate way, according to the process of development and evolution. Identity, it is necessary for students to acquire a set of necessary skills first. It is hoped that the results of the present research can make university administrators and officials aware of the importance of this issue so that they can take effective and practical steps towards the success and implementation of the present research. The limitations of the research in this study are: limiting the statistical population to the University of Medical Sciences, the geographical scope of the research, and unfortunately, in the case of a number of articles, access to the full text of the articles was not possible. The problem of communicating with some professors of the university and determining the time needed to conduct the interview was one of the problems and limitations of the study. According to the results, it is suggested that the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology presents successful management and strategic experiences of national and international universities and institutions of higher education inside and outside the country as practical examples to universities and institutions. By forming future research teams, the university administrators should predict the issues and problems facing the organization in terms of paying attention to digitalization paradigms. Develop scientific parks and international research centers in universities in order to expand the activities of managers and professors in the direction of moving towards digitalization.
