This contribution deals with the use of e-learning in the daily work of teachers and the most often mentioned obstacles for not using it. A study outlines that only about 3-5% of lecturers use e-learning in their courses. To gain an overview of the whole subject an outline of the dimensions of e-learning in schooling is posted. In order to overcome some of the barriers the tool "Easy-E-Publishing" has been developed to provide lecturers an extremely easy-to-use tool for e-publishing. This tool can be used to make first steps in preparing and publishing contents for e-learning purposes. This tool is designed especially for beginners with a very limited knowledge in computers and the web.
