To perform e-Learning courses the instructor needs support: on one side best practice solutions and on the other side software support to bring the pedagogical ideas into action, covering all phases of planning and performing online courses. It is also important that the support provided to the teacher has a pedagogical, not technical point of view. In this paper we propose to capture best practice solutions by e-learning design patterns, and to assist the instructor we propose a process based software assistant, to bridge the gap between the educational environments and the provided technical support by the learning management system.
