Communication is essential to education. Therefore, we can say the educational systems integrate various communication tools in a pedagogical proposal, which has been changing over the years. There was a transition from the analogue to digital culture and this shift promotes a virtual world. The study proposes a discussion of digital communication technology in trend and from the prospect of Distance Education, in order to point out the need for differentiation from analogue to digital teaching mediation. Mediation in the DE involves differentiated elements of the face-to-face mode, especially towards the organization of time and space, as well as media. A pedagogical action mediated by technologies implies a virtual world. As a result, a different look, ehich embraces a diverse dynamic is required in order to contemplate learning situations set up by natural principles, organization and specific development - autonomous, continuous and motivated.
