SUMMARY

This paper presents a comprehensive overview of the Educational Portal of the Americas (www.educoas.org). The Portal is an initiative of the IACD/OAS implemented within the framework of the Cooperation Fund of the United States, with the goals of fulfilling a portion of the mandates emanating from the Third Summit of the Americas and contributing to the achievement of the Connectivity Agenda for the Americas. The Educational Portal is an online tool in the service of the democratization of information, whose primary aim is to increase opportunities for training of the highest academic quality that are available in distance education.
