The pandemic caused by the coronavirus forced the sudden closure of schools around the world. In order not to lose the school semester, many schools were forced to migrate their offerings to the internet. For many school communities, this resulted in a painful transition. Schools faced the harsh reality that not everyone has reliable internet access for every member of the household to use at the same time. Teachers faced the challenge of managing multiple online users and overloaded networks that caused unexpected failures. Students were overwhelmed with work and frustrated to see that technology didn't always work how and when they wanted. But creative and resilient, we all fought to ensure that no one was left behind.
Now that summer is approaching, schools have an opportunity to review the achievements of the semester and prepare their educational offering for the next school year. At Altamente we offer several solutions to facilitate distance education, but the most comprehensive and flexible is Moodle.

Originally developed in 2002 as a learning management system following constructivist principles, Moodle has grown modularly. Its modularity has facilitated its use in different ways depending on the needs and vision of each institution.
