This article presents a conceptual model aimed at optimizing the efficiency of higher education in Morocco through digitization. The rapid and profound transformations observed in contemporary 21st-century society have led to the emergence of new perspectives for understanding and improving educational systems. The central objective of this study is to determine how to promote the digitization of Moroccan higher education, taking into account its key characteristics and the challenges it faces.

To achieve this objective, a rigorous methodology was followed, which included a thorough review of existing literature on the digitization of higher education, conceptual analyses, and empirical research. Qualitative and quantitative data were collected from higher education institutions in Morocco to validate and enhance the proposed conceptual model.

This study provides a valuable contribution to the understanding and implementation of the digitization of higher education in Morocco. By offering a clear and comprehensive conceptual model, it guides decision-makers and stakeholders in the higher education sector in the planning and implementation of coherent policies. This opens promising prospects for improving the quality of education, adapting to technological advancements, and developing the necessary skills for the success of Moroccan students in an ever-evolving digital world.
