Annotation: The object of research in the article is educational process with tuition, upbringing and development as constituent parts. The matter of research is quality of mainly humanitarian education after digital technologies having been inculcated into its process. The greater attention is paid to socio-cultural analysis of reasons and factors as well as negative tendencies that take place in social life and education due to inadequate and thoughtless informatization. The article focuses on objective reasons that lead to ambiguous results of contemporary education conflicting with those expected by pedagogues and society. Basing on cultural approach the author estimates university education results and its using digital technologies through the prism of culture criteria. This allows us not only to see these results (including negative), but to understand the nature of these reasons. The main method of research is dialectical analysis of contradictions in educational process and in forming students’ culture and worldview. The article concludes that it is humans but not technologies who should rule in the world. The novelty of the work is in the new facet of viewing the issue and in cultural approaches that help to better understand topical matters of improving education quality as well. The initial criteria of estimating university graduates should be criteria of culture. The approaches and estimates given in the article allow us to find new methods contributing to creating more effective and efficient pedagogical technologies.
