The higher education in Latvia became remote in the spring of 2020 due to the pandemic of Covid-19. Bearing in mind the probability of reoccurrence of a similar crisis, the aim of the study is to establish the self-evaluation of digital communication and collaboration skills of Latvian higher education students, and to detect the difficulties experienced during the remote study process. Data was collected through an online survey. Study shows that although the self-assessed level of competence of digital communication and collaboration skills is high, the use of skills is not as frequent, indicating that remote study process is not equivalent to on-site education. The academic staff is advised to vary teaching methods to stimulate use of different skills.
