This chapter introduces some ideas of the German philosopher Martin Heidegger and how they can be applied to e-learning design. It argues that heideggerian thinking (in particular the interpretation done by Hubert Dreyfus) can inspire innovations in e-learning design and implementation by putting practice at the center of knowledge creation, which in the case of professional and corporate education are real work situations. It also points out the limits of distance learning imposed by the nature of human beings. Furthermore, the author hope that Heidegger ideas will not only inform researchers of a better design for e-learning projects, but also illuminate practitioners on how to design e-learning courses aimed at bridging the gap between “knowing” and “doing.”
