Summary/Abstract: New paradigms were born in the fields of scientific research and technological development, in the way of doing business, in the nature of work, and in business management. Education, as an activity essential to the societal development, could not be left aside the technological phenomenon, which brought about essential changes that created new methods, models and paradigms in the postmodern education. Both in the European countries and in the United States, the development of education based on IT resources is enjoying a great interest and focus is kept on long-life learning, flexible, interdisciplinary and adult education. In this context, the paper aims to put some light on the concept of e-learning, by briefly presenting its evolution, main features, advantages and – of great importance – minimal requirements for an efective and efficient approach.
