Abstract

Abstract The paper aims to introduce a new concept: e-heutagogy. This aim is approached through two sub-objectives:a) Giving the rationale for the new concept of e-heutagogy.b) Outlining the features of e-heutagogy necessary for lifelong e-learning.Why do we need a new concept? Learning is a complex concept and it is a part of our entire life. Today we can speak about new generations of learners at all levels, from kindergarten to university, not only due to technology but also due to rapid changes in open, heterogeneous, dynamic and uncertain environments.Taking into account that heutagogy is appropriate to the needs of learners but learners are most of their life without their teachers and a big part of them are in fact e-learners, it seems obvious that heutagogy and e-learning share the same road and the same direction. The new concept stems from heutagogy but it enriched it by bringing new facets and connects it with lifelong e-learning.
