In the past years, the number of students using E-learning as support for their studies has risen sharply. The factors that triggered these changes in the learning environment are mainly due to financial pressure. Cuts on the financing of universities has led to educational institutions searching for more efficient methods of educating their students, but also allowing them to expand their markets abroad. E-learning is widely used by students from non-English speaking countries.
In addition, because the students are dissatisfied with the "excessively priced course material," students turn to E-learning methods.
A recent survey conducted by the National Union of Students and CourseSmart showed that 81% of higher education students believe that textbooks should be included at no additional cost in the initial course. In addition, 95% of the interviewed young people use E-learning to help them with their studies.
