summary The accelerated rate of change that we live nowadays, demands professionals to develop new learning skills to cope with it the rampant development of information technology opens up new horizons and challenges in the way that a human being can be formed through education. In response to the technological progress and rapid rate of change, the Tecnológico de Monterrey System has redesigned its education model, focusing on learning rather than teaching. This means not only acquiring knowledge on theory and concepts, but also learning skills, attitudes, and values that make students be committed with their community & country needs. It also means to be competitive in their area of knowledge at the international level. A central element in the new educational strategy is the technological platform where the academic courses are developed. This platform helps students and professors to do a great deal of the course activities on a lap-top through the computer the interaction between students with students, or professor with students has increased. At the Tecnológico de Monterrey System the implantation of the educational strategy has meant the creation of training programs for teachers, and technological development & support to attend over 5,000 teachers and 70,000 students.
