The results of this research shows that the tutor, this new kind of professional, needs differential abilities, cognitive, interpersonal, dialogic and technical, acting with technique and pedagogic ability the mediation role, of fundamental relevance, on the construction of the meaningful learning and collaborative of distance education.
