The paper investigates research into the ESP teachers’ role in relation to different teaching methods and students’ role in e-learning within the Moodle LMS. The number of definitions to e-learning, multiple terms and concepts, which focus on technological aspects and educational process of learning, and reflect authors´cultural, educational and institutional backgrounds were reviewed. In the current technology-driven environment, the role of the ESP e-learning teacher (tutor) is multidimensional and challenging, as there is a great demand for new tools and learner-centered learning approaches. The utilisation of computers will influence the way how teachers teach and students learn, and it will be up to the teachers to make use of the Internet in ways that match the pedagogical goals.
Key words: e-learning, Moodle LMS, information and communication technology, ESP teacher, learners´ autonomy
