Description

This project brings education to isolated coffee communities by implementing on-line distance learning community centers. A community-learning center is a physical space located in rural, semi-rural, and urban areas where participants can access educational programs through computer technology and interact with tutors/teachers at the Tecnologico de Monterrey. The feedback and monitoring of the teaching-learning process are possible through the tech platform, WebTec, which allows for continuous monitoring of process and results.
