The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the higher education sector hard, in which universities are forced to accelerate the implementation of online learning. Although universities have e-learning ecosystems in place, yet, these environments are mostly designed for blended learning in mind, and not a full-blown remote learning implementation. This special issue discusses the state of e-learning in higher education and how universities coped with its demands. The special issue also touches on how we can move forward in the post-pandemic era, in implementation of pre-existing models of blended learning or moving into flexible and agile learning ecosystems in line with the fourth industrial revolution.

The Research Topic discusses the state of e-learning in higher education, and presents initiatives, interventions, and implementations that were carried out in responding to teaching and learning demands of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also discusses future directions in post-pandemic education and aligns these directions with the fourth industrial revolutions affordances and challenges.

We encourage authors to submit papers in the form of original research, policy and practice reviews, systematic reviews, brief research reports, case reports, community case studies, curriculum instruction and pedagogy, and policy briefs. The themes of articles in the special issues are related to:

1. Policies and practice for online learning at higher education in the pandemic and post-pandemic eras
2. Trends for for online learning at higher education in the pandemic and post-pandemic eras
3. Curriculum instruction and pedagogy for online learning at higher education in the pandemic and post-pandemic eras
4. Assessment and evaluation for online learning at higher education in the pandemic and post-pandemic eras
