||The pedagogic approach in the architectural field is suffering a deep change taking in consideration the impact that has been produced
mainly by the CAD and multimedia procedures.
An additional view to be taken in consideration is the challenge produced by the influence of advanced IT which since 1990-92, has
affected positively the exchange of information among people of the academic environment.
Several studies confirm this hypothesis, from the wide cultural spectrum when the digitalization process was emerging as an alternative
way to data processing (Bateson 1976) to the pedagogical-computational side analyzed by (Papert 1996).
One of the main characteristics indicated by S. Papert (op.cit) is the idea of "self teaching" which students are used everywhere due to
the constant augment of "friendly" software and the decreasing costs of hardware. Another consequences to point out by S. Paper
(op.cit) is that will be more probably that students at home will have more actualized equipment that most of the computer lab. of
schools in general.
Therefore, the main hypothesis of this paper is, "if we are able to combine usual tutorials design methods with the concept of
"self-teaching" regarding the paradigmatic architectural models that are used in practically all the schools of architecture (Le
Corbusier, F.L.Wright, M.v. der Rohe, M.Botta, T.Ando, etc.) using a Web site available to everybody, what we are doing is expanding
the existing knowledge in the libraries and fulfill the future requirements of the newly generations of students".
