[Autom. eng. transl.] The work aims to outline which evolutions the figure of the e-tutor is going through in the context of telematic education in the light of the changes that digital and social media are introducing (Rivoltella, 2017; Ferrari 2019). The communicative dimension on which this role is based remains fundamental (Rivoltella, 2006) which highlights the need for online moderation skills, preparation of group management and animation of online communities. The e-tutor, in particular, is required to be aware of the modeling activity it carries out towards the students through its communication and teaching activities (interactive and delivery) within the online degree courses: facilitating the interaction between teachers and students, favoring the proper performance and monitoring of teaching activities, supporting the teaching staff in the activities of verifying the students' preparation, supporting teachers and students in the final exam. This contribution presents the case study carried out on the role of the e-tutor in an Italian online university using an analysis methodology already validated in the literature.
