Abstract

The public higher education in Albania continues the traditional method of “in site” teaching.Under global crisis and surviving
conditions in the Albanian society a new phenomenon is taking place; the emerging of new educational policies such as opening new
filials by the main city universities to the distance communities.This phenomen positively impacts not only the economic performance but
also the global and social integration of distance, rural and poor communities. But on the other hand, this scheme requires constant
mobility of the lecturers and very compressed modules of teaching. This article introduces a new hybrid scheme of off site learning by
building a permanent educational “bridge” for the students of the filials, providing also the most economic way with the hardware and
software use. The novelty stands in matching Lecturers “D-lecturer or distance-lecturers” in the main university with Assistants “Alecturer
ose assistant-lecturer” in the filials, enabling a permanent communication by exploiting all the efficient means with the help of the
information and communication technology. The large-scale cultural and educational impact for remote communities and a full economic
solution for poor communities in terms of global crisis are described in this paper. There are many issues to be discussed but one thing
is certain: The future belongs to the alternation of teaching methods and experiences facilitated by digital technology in the Albanian
High Schools.
