The author defines the role and place of e‑learning in the education system of the 21st century, showing its positive and negative sides. Particular attention is paid to the prerequisites of the formation and development of electronic forms of education in the global educational space.

The author defines the specificity of content as the main tool of e‑education: its components are highlighted, factors affecting its effectiveness, “painful” points are marked that should be paid attention to when improving the content. The article describes the main concepts of e‑learning — North American and European, shows, in general terms, the history of their formation and features in the understanding of e‑learning. In his work, the author focuses on the use of e‑learning as a brand of the country.
