The modern world cannot be imagined without the Internet and digital devices; sustainable digitalization is a global trend that covers all areas of life and is gaining momentum from year to year. The digitalization of the educational sphere in Ka-zakhstan began relatively recently, but the global pandemic and the associated transition to distance education have significantly accelerated the process of digi-tal transformation of the education system. The article provides an analysis of the problems that Kazakhstani education had to face in the transition to online learn-ing, and emergency measures taken by the state and the business environment to solve them. Based on the materials of in-depth interviews with experts in the edu-cational field, an analysis was made of the impact of the pandemic on the process of digital transformation of the educational sector and the prospects for the devel-opment of education in the changed conditions, and key areas for further improv-ing the quality of digital education were identified.
