​E-Learning is generally seen as offering solutions to such current challenges facing higher education as the move towards lifelong learning with its demand for continuous professional development and wider participation and engagement of learners at the tertiary level.

This paper focuses on presenting the findings of a study that considered this very question. The study was conducted in a multi-campus private university, in Karachi, Pakistan. It sought to explore the impact of e-learning on the teaching and learning of academic English with nursing students with an intermediate level of language proficiency. The study focused on trialing a curriculum intervention where the content and delivery of an academic English [reading and writing] course was delivered through a learning management system and by using Web 2.0 tools in this context.
