Recent publications in the field of e-learning highlight the importance of the "moderator's" approach to developing students' online learning. They identify that the major challenges for online teachers arise from the diversity of roles which moderators are required to undertake. However, little is reported about the roles e-moderators actually adopt in different learning contexts, and how these range between 'teaching' and 'facilitating'. This research, in the naturalistic setting of online discussions, focused on the ways in which four different e-moderators in higher education approached online learning with students.
