The electronic dissemination of information via computer networks is having a considerable impact on educational institutions in terms of the mechanisms that they are able to employ for course delivery. As a result of this, the number of courses that are taught electronically through the Internet and/or the World Wide Web has increased considerably over the last few years. Such courses require two fundamental types of resource: appropriately designed electronic course materials (for students to study) and a network of online tutors who can provide active support, advice and encouragement for students. This paper discusses the nature of the skill sets needed by online tutors in order to fulfil their roles effectively and efficiently within an online learning community. Some mechanisms for acquiring these skills are also briefly discussed.
