Abstract

eLearning systems have become a very important part of teaching, both as web-based systems for online education and as auxiliary tools for face-to-face study, where they provide an additional learning support for on-campus learners. To insure the sustainability of an eLearning system on both individual and social levels, we have to cover many aspects of sustain- ability requirements: human, technical, economic, and environmental. This paper provides a systematic literature review of the sustainability meta-requirements for eLearning systems to identify open problems and to present the state of the art of this research area. We analysed 124 papers, so we identified 18 high-level sustainability requirements for eLearning systems. Keywords Sustainability requirements · Requirements engineering · eLearning · Sustainable eLearning systems · Sustainability · Systematic literature review 1 Introduction We call a system sustainable if it satisfies the sustain - ability requirements which cover the related sustainability Requirements engineering (RE), i.e., requirements elicita- dimensions identified in [ 52, 115, 116, 122]: tion, evaluation, specification, and design producing the functional and non-functional requirements, is one of the – Human sustainability: Individual needs should be pro- key disciplines in software engineering, as requirements- tected and supported with dignity and in a way that related errors are often a
