Abstract

Abstract: This paper presents the initial stages of a Leonardo Da Vinci project. The project aims at developing the EIT (English Language for Information Technology Specialists) E-Learning module, which will include relevant and innovative e-learning material for English learning/teaching in the field of IT. This material will be designed for IT professionals, students and English language tutors in order to bridge the current gap in the English for Specific Purposes (ESP) IT-related materials and to facilitate the work of tutors, enhance selfstudy and encourage life-long learning. The paper presents also the analysis of the results of a survey aiming at identifying the requirements, special needs and innovation drivers of the potential users of the proposed module. The survey was conducted through a questionnaire given to IT students and interviews with IT professionals. Based on the analysis of the results we proceed herein with suggestions for the design of the module.
