Currently, there is a great deal of interest in the advent of 5G technologies, due to the perspectives they open up in various fields, among which e-learning. In this paper, an experience of online learning is described, concerning an online bachelor degree of the Università degli Studi di Milano delivered with currently available technology. An investigation is conducted about whether the services offered to learners might improve with the forthcoming 5G technology. To this aim, the characteristics of main multimedia applications are reviewed; the services and performance theoretically supplied by 5G are derived from a literature analysis; a numerical evaluation is conducted basing both on that analysis and on simulation results, in comparison with LTE.
