We present conclusions of a study conducted at our university (in Poland) on student experiences with remote education as well as their expectations for the future. The study was conducted in the form of an online survey; approximately 800 respondents completed the questionnaire. The obtained results show that most students rate remote education relatively highly, although there are differences in specific questions (e.g., theoretical classes vs. practical classes). Students of social and humanist faculties view remote education most positively, and science student opinions are mostly negative. It has also been observed that some students are uncritically satisfied with most aspects of distance learning (the so-called “Tiggers”), while others are strong supporters of face-to-face education, reluctant to accept any changes (so-called “Eeyores”), so regardless of the scope of pro-quality activities undertaken, both criticism and praise of remote education can be expected. The obtained results open the field for further studies that would confirm the covariance of multidimensional characteristics of students and their attitudes toward the digital university, and on the other hand would allow planning activities aimed at different and perhaps mutually contradictory expectations of the recipients of education.
