ABSTRACT
In Distance Learning programs communication between students and tutors is a key factor contributing to the completion of studies and the success of the programme. By means of this communication the tutor can facilitate the interaction and active involvement of students with the learning material, and motivate their interest in deeper understanding. Thus, they contribute to students' effort towards discovery of knowledge. In addition, effective communication can act as support for the student through clear and adequate feedback, which informs the students of their progress and provides vital encouragement. In this paper we present the survey which was administered to tutors of the course module EDU65 (Open and Distance Education) of the Hellenic Open University. The objective of the survey was to study their views on the frequency, subject and ways of communication with the students. Through their answers we try to determine their perception of the dual role they play in H.O.U.
