Abstract: The article is dedicated to the issue of student-teacher communication in the context of e-learning. Many teachers are afraid of the possibility to not be needed in the computer assisted education. To contradict this common belief, a recent research proved the increased importance of the teacher in the ICT age. Some results of an action research on e-learning classroom also suggest a shift in the teacher role: on the one hand, the importance of the teacher feedback has increased largely with the introduction of technology, at the same time teacher’s active role during the classes is accepted as monitoring rather than ruling.
Key words: e-learning, ICT age, student-teacher communication
