Nowadays, digital technologies have a significant impact on how business perceptions change and how new businesses are created. The new technological paradigm harnesses the potential of collaboration and intellectual capital to develop and implement more robust and sustainable entrepreneurial initiatives. However, while a research in digital entrepreneurship is relevant and timely, there is a limited amount of studies on the real impact of digital technology and intellectual capital on entrepreneurship education, although inquiries into digital entrepreneurship theory and practice have drawn more attention in the recent years. Moreover, at the current level of globalization, society, as practice shows (the situation with COVID-19), is not protected from global shocks in the form of chain crises and pandemics. Therefore, digital entrepreneurship is also able to help solve the economic problems caused by the above phenomena. The purpose of the article is to analyse and clarify various aspects of training students of economic specialties in digital entrepreneurship; formulate the tasks that arise while using digital technologies in the economy, and determine the ways to solve them in the education system. Among many forms of digital entrepreneurship training, online courses are one of the strongest trends and they do affect the content and flow of teaching and learning. This article also focuses on better understanding the skills, opportunities, and risks involved in using the online courses as a new way of training entrepreneurship in higher education system. The authors empirically study the problems and drivers for developing such courses as a new pedagogical concept. The results show that such a course is flexible in time and space and can therefore contribute to the accessibility of entrepreneurship education.
