Globalization through the mediation of information and communication technologies influences greatly higher education (appearing transnational education, great amount of alternative providers of higher education and runaway staff mobility in virtual space). Virtual mobility attracts attention of politicians and experts in the field of education (“The Bologna Process and the European Higher Education Area” – Salamanca Convention, 2001, includes an idea of joint European approach to virtual mobility and transnational education; “Mobility for Better Learning” – Mobility strategy 2020 for the European Higher Education Area, 2011) and scientists (National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine project “International Education on the Basis of Flexible Centers of Distance Technologies and Computer-Tele-Communicational Networks”). Problem of mobility is one of the most disputable among higher education researchers in Europe. Development of virtual academic mobility transforms modern education into a social institution which could provide different educational services to humans for their lifelong learning. Modern situation demands attention to distance education development through creation of specialized informationaleducational courses and areas of e-learning, development of e-libraries and databases, support of “network lecturers” and e-courses developers. It should stimulate university staff media-educational training they could project educational environment using modern information technologies. Our task was to investigate Ukrainian academicians’ experience and e-competences necessary for participation in virtual mobility processes (sample – 710). The instruments of measurement and diagnostics were a specially constructed questionnaire and a method of self-evaluation of ecompetences necessary for effective participation in virtual academic mobility.
