Abstract

In today's society people are immersed in a large amount of data, in which there is the risk of getting lost. Information can be a problem, unless we know how to handle, control, monitor and verify its reliability. Data become useful information only when they quickly and effectively respond to a need. We have witnessed with telematics to the progressive transformation of the user into protagonist of her/his own formation. For educational systems new tasks have emerged, as well as the appearance of new tools, needed to deal with the new knowledge. The amount of scientific/didactic quality information available on the net constantly increases, for free and common use.
