The share of Hungarians who have taken online courses or used online learning materials has more than doubled during the pandemic, state news wire MTI reports, citing data compiled by Eurostat.

The share of Hungarians between the ages of 16 and 74 who took an online course or used online learning materials in the three months prior to a survey rose from 9% in 2019 to 20% in 2020. In 2021, the ratio reached 23%, still a little under the 27% average for the European Union as a whole.

The share of Czechs who availed of online learning last year stood at 22%. The ratio was 19% for Poland and 30% in Slovakia.
