Digital higher education has recently become a vital necessity rather than, as sometimes considered, a luxury or even a choice. This shift has been driven by a number of factors, but most recently in 2020, this was due to a rapid need to find ways to maintain higher education provision in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Teaching and learning in higher education has traditionally been considered an onsite activity; but initial digital developments in information technology led to increased resource access, while subsequent digital developments in communications technology led to increased social, communicative and collaborative access. International students can now often access higher education through digital means, yet there are additional factors that come into play that can affect modes and forms of teaching and learning. This chapter explores how digital higher education might provide appropriately for the international and inclusive practice that it seeks to support.
