In this article we have analyzed the competencies that the online teachers currently need for developing the online tutorial action, as well as the tasks that they play. To respond to that aim, we have designed an inventory that 101 online teachers have responded and have interviewed 46 e-learning professionals. The results derived from the statistical analysis and the content analysis, show the wide variety of competencies that the online teacher must possess and reveal that the subject knowledge is insufficient.
