Digitization will bring unlimited potential and a new vision for education, and the digitization of education is a historical process and an inevitable trend of education reform. This paper first puts forward the connotation, foundation, core of education digital transformation and the typical stages of development. Then extracts a series of practices launched in China to cope with the demand in digital transformation from four aspects: platform construction, curriculum supply, teaching methods and evaluation methods. Finally, the exploration and practice carried out by three typical universities are presented where the author has served as president, namely Central China Normal University, Xidian University and Wuhan University of Technology. The purpose is to summarize their development patterns and characteristics to provide reference for the subsequent comprehensive transformation of higher education digitalization. Overall, digital transformation will promote paradigmatic changes in higher education research and practice, build a high-quality higher education system, and promote human-centered development caring for comprehensive, holistic and personalized needs.
