    In accordance with various recent studies as well as European Declarations, almost all EU members proclaim that increasing and widening participation in higher education is a major policy objective. Due to certain initiatives in this field, the amount of students, choosing for higher education establishments, is increasing year after year. Nevertheless, these numbers provide the evidence of quantitative dynamics, while qualitative (e.g. social) change is aimed. A shift towards knowledge-based societies does not only imply a process of higher education massification; this institute must become more socially inclusive. This means, the students entering, participating in and completing higher education at all levels should reflect the diversity of European countries'populations. To fulfill such requirements, some measures aimed at educational process facilitation must be accepted, so that students were able to complete their studies without obstacles related to their social and economic background. In our opinion, the primary role in the educational reform belongs to technological modification and renovation. Thus, an overview of new technologies helping to expand higher education initiatives throughout Europe is of a great interest.
