Abstract:In the beginning of the ХХ century, the e-learning became the main trend in the development of national educational systems and this fact is reflected in numerous official documents of OECD, UNESCO and EU. Geopolitics recognizes informally e-learning as a new technology of intellectual colonization and a powerful factor of international competitiveness. Such countries as Finland, Ireland, South Korea, China, India, France, and others built up their innovative economics on the base of new forms of education. According to the criteria of UNESCO and WB, Russia occupied only the 57th place in the list from 65 countries in development and information technologies use in the middle of the current decade. However, even such criteria require special attention to the quality and term of education.
