In recent months, the world in general and the academic world are coping with wide ranging changes due to the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, which force us all to assimilate many changes. The academic world has quickly adopted these changes and made the transition to digital distance learning. These changes are challenging and are added as an additional struggle in adopting distance learning. At the same time, there is a growing notion that academic institutions are not just providers of knowledge, but cultural agents of change as well. As such, they must develop new skills among students. These includes real-time problem solving, decision making, independent learning, synthesis of knowledge, and daily challenges of the ever-changing New-World as well as developing critical thinking and self-esteem. In order to remain relevant, the academic world must incorporate innovative content and teaching paradigms that allow adaptation to these changes, rather than holding on to traditional online teaching methods alone. This article describes the implementation of a unique student-centered teaching methodology which is digitally learned and assessed. The methodology is part of a transformation of higher education into student-oriented and as a necessary development of skills for students in a changing world environment using distance digital learning platforms.
