The creation of systematically organized informational and methodological resources for providing training in the context of higher education digitalization is the subject of interdisciplinary research. The paper aims to study the dependence of learning outcomes in a digital educational environment on factors such as the dominant intellectual modality, digital intelligence, educational paradigms, teaching tools, meeting educational needs, and a technologically comfortable environment. The authors take an integrated approach to study the issue of training autonomy, its dependence on the level of formation of the optimal patterns of students’ cognitive behavior, on the cognitive load increase in the process of self-regulatory learning, and on the skills of metacognitive self-instruction for regulating cognitive processes. The authors conclude that in building the information and educational environment, it is necessary to take into account the assessment of the cognitive potential of the educational capabilities of students. Another conclusion is that the informational architecture of the informative content should perform the function of an external trigger of internal motives to develop sustainable models of students’ cognitive behavior.
