Technology innovations supporting Web 4.0 and Web 5.0 influence the quality of student learning and performance in blended and distant learning. Development of web technology extends the capabilities and varieties of e-learning. The Covid-19 pandemic drastically accelerated the changes in education and transformed the mode of teaching and learning. This paper analyzes the changes that have occured in e-learning following the evolution of World Wide Web. It also focuses on Web 3.0, Web 4.0 and the trends in Web 5.0 and Web 6.0 to outline the new features of e-learning. The symbiotic relationship between Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Linked Data, Cloud Computing, and Data-Driven Science is also focused on. "The Semantic Web" connecting Web's data performs context- based search and research. The Internet of Things lets Web-connected machines of all kinds to communicate with each other and with us, creating a rich flow of data about their location and status. In the near future Web 5.0 and Web 6.0 probably will completely alter our way of communication and acquiring knowledge. The simulating models of virtual and augmented reality with the power of AI will reshape all spheres of our social life, for good or bad.


A developing information society creates prerequisites and conditions for faster access to data and information exchange through the Internet worldwide, not just in an individual country. New computer technology is changing the content and application practices in e-learning. The consequent applications of all multimedia and simulation technologies, computer-mediated communication and communities, and Internet-based support for individual and distance learning have the potential for revolutionary improvements in Education (McArthur et al., 1993). At present, many e-learning tools with varying functionality and purposes exist (Aroyo and Dicheva, 2002; and Murray et al., 2003). With the new technologies implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI), the functions and the role of the consultant or the trainer will be supplemented by software
