The impact of information technologies on the development of lifelong learning in postindustrial (information) society is considered in the paper. Economic progress has caused the need for additional vocational training, reeducation and retraining of employees. The development of computerization and informatization of society has led to radical changes in education. First, adults of post graduate and retirement age, and later the children of preschool age who are actively exploring modern ICT, were involved in a lifelong learning process in developed European countries. The widespread availability of computers and ICT has caused the development of formal, nonformal and informal education. The use of advanced information and telecommunication technologies has led to adjustments in the content and education technologies, helping to solve problems of differentiation and individualization of learning, and the development of variant curriculums. The e-learning began to play a special role.
