This paper deals with a fuzzy expert system for evaluating teachers in e-learning. The special fuzzy expert system for evaluating teacher using satisfaction questionnaire with evaluative linguistic expressions and separate knowledge bases of expert system is proposed. Proposed expert system was created using Linguistic Fuzzy Logic Controller. In the proposed fuzzy expert system the theory of Natural Fuzzy Logic is applied.
