    When considering the implementation of e-learning into our system of education, attention must be paid to the demands to be met at different levels. It is a known fact that the difficulty of implementation varies from primary school to university. In primary schools, e-learning is only a supplement to traditional lessons, while at university tutorials can be made up entirely of e-learning elements. However, High School falls between these two levels - the extent of e-learning is not adequately defined and its implementation is much more problematic than one would expect. Ideally, the progress of a student’s comprehension should grow linearly from primary school to university. This would also allow for a gradual increase in the e-learning content of lessons. However, the reality in education is quite different. It must be recognised that the transition between primary and high school, and between high school and university is not as smooth as it should be. There exists a large gap in a student’s comprehension at these two stages of transition, which for many students results in a reduced level of achievement. This happens because, before the transitional stage, students are not as competent in their independent learning skills as the next stage would require. A decrease in overall success rates is seen very early in the first year of these stages of transition (the first year of high school and the first year at university). This gap in a student’s comprehension at these transitional stages results in further difficulties because of the increased use of e-learning in the stage that follows. Students have enough problems developing their learning capabilities and further changes (however positive) can also lead to a reduced level of achievement. When considering implementation into the system of education, all three levels must be coordinated in order to reduce the large disparities that cause so many problems.
