Web 2.0 is about social networking and collaboration between the creator and the user. Web 3.0 is termed as intelligent web or semantic web with technologies like big data, linked data, cloud computing, 3D visualization, augmented reality and more to make passive learner into active learner in the learning process. This paper identifies the characteristics of the different generations of web and its effect on the different generations of e-learning and also identifies the various issues related with web 3.0. Finally a study is made on the user preferences and recorded in this paper.
