For this special section for the British Journal of Education Technology on the future of online higher education in the post-covid-19 era, we called for research papers to analyse and reflect on the lessons and experiences universities, East and West, have gained over the period of the ongoing pandemic. We intended that the special section would also explore the implications for the future of online university education. The research is, therefore, particularly timely, and provides a good complement to a previous BJET special section: online and blended learning: contexts and conditions for education in an emergency (Greenhow & Lewin, 2021), which emphasizes the ‘transition into’ and ‘transition through’ experiences. Since it was issued in June 2021, the call for the special section attracted great interest.
