Abstract

The use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in a cooperative way can give a good improvement in the educational field; in developing countries, especially in Sub-Saharan area. Sustainable technologies and collaborative LMS are investigated in a case study as possible ways to improve, towards distance learning systems, education and towards it, social empowerment and development. A web-based system, customized for an academic year proposal in medicine and surgery field, helps the development of cooperation among universities and research empowerment and exchange, useful for both entities and their stakeholders. Different uses and approaches to the technological solution allow different participants to model and interact with the project despite difficulties and environmental gabs that could occur in some territories of the Sub-Saharan countries.
