This was a survey of the literature regarding the use ofe-learning in two mainline e-learning projects in the European Union: (a) the e-Learning Action Plan and (b) the e-Learning Program. I found evidence that the European Commission (EC) has positively affected European countries that have participated in these projects by (a) providing necessary infrastructures and equipment, (b) implementing teacher training, (c) delivering useful content and services, (d) encouraging cooperation and networking; (e) promoting digital literacy, (f) launching European virtual campuses, and (g) supporting the use of the World Wide Web (WWW) for “e-Twinning” primary and secondary schools.
