Based on theoretical modelling the solution to the problem is divided in two parts, one of which is related to adding data sciences to MET and the other refers to increasing intensity of digital advertising to solve the problem of low knowability index (KI) of MET. The research showed that KI is the output of effective digital marketing strategy. Thus, all parameters characterizing effectiveness could be divided into categories and by applying AHP methods the weight of each criteria could be assessed. Based on the weights and on the analytical measurements collected from monitoring tools the KI was calculated. Analysis of KI component and whole KI found out main ways of increasing MET popularity, which could be implemented through on increasing advertising intensity in the social networks the whole year and also by adding new content which are related within the digitization into MET study programmes’ modules.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.15.03.08}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Maritime Education and Training (MET), Maritime Education, MET System in Lithuania, Popularity of Maritime Education, Knowability Index (KI), Effectiveness Index, Digital Marketing, Digital Marketing Strategy} }
