Abstract: At the end of a period during which most of the education has moved online, it is legitimate to ask ourselves: What are the programs that prepare trainers and teachers for online teaching in Romania? This intersection of pedagogy and technology has been seen differently over the years. Most often technology has been seen as a means of making teaching more efficient, and less as a teaching-learning environment. Without teachers training to understand the online education paradigm, the understanding of this new paradigm of education, namely, online education, and the quality of education will be seriously affected. In this article, we make a brief review of how teachers have been prepared for online teaching in Europe and Romania in recent years, as well as a presentation of the programs that currently exist in Romania in this area. The “E-learning Developer” program is presented as a means of training teachers in recent years.

Keywords: e-learning developer, instructional designer, professional training program, teaching online.
