The key trend of our time is the transition from product-centeredness to human-centeredness in all spheres of production and social life. But above all, it concerns industries related to the development of human capital. This trend is reflected in the individualization of education and its transformation into a continuous process covering all stages of a person's professional life. Digital technology forms the tangible basis for this process. As a result, human-centeredness is becoming an important characteristic of the entire field of education.
