Distance Education (e-learning)

The Nucleus for Open and Distance Education (NEAD) has been transformed into the Secretariat for Distance Education (SEAD). It is the body responsible for promoting educational activities and training, in which the didactical and pedagogical interaction between teaching and learning occurs through the use of information and communication technologies, in virtual environments for learning, and in-class activities in municipal spots for support of the Open University of Brazil (UAB) and other educational environments.
