E-learning encourages ideas to be exchanged, knowledge transferred and intellectual ideals pursued.On the other hand, e-learning also poses new challenges to traditional notions of education.Almost inevitably, moral dilemmas arise out of the activities of all e-learning participants.These dilemmas range from issues in learning assessment to the ethical implications of using technology for education.The present paper first enumerates and explains a number of ethical principles distilled from an extensive research of literature in philosophy, law, history,sociology, and political science.Examples of how these ethical principles may be applied in resolving real-life moral dilemmas in e-learning will be illustrated. The paper will eventually propose an ethical framework based on insights from recent research by the author for effective resolution of ethical dilemmas in e-learning.
