ABSTRACT
Technologies of Information and Communications, TIC, have naturally become incorporated in university teaching obeying to different motivations of a sector of academics. This particular genesis explains the diversity existing in Universities, Faculties and in the academics themselves regarding the use and applications of the TIC. The percentage of academics who has incorporated them is still low, and the tendency is to use them as a support to the traditional educational process, rather than to integrate them to it and to take advantage of the generation of positive external issues and of learning environments which may be possibly to design and enable with them, so as to increase the quality of the educational process and its result. TICs and Internet do not educate neither replace the professor, but they are a powerful resource whose incorporation should consider the professor's new roles, new contents, programs and evaluation methods. Their incorporation demands a systemic revision, corporate and transversely the current educational contexts from the estimate of credit hours and professors' academic loads and curricular network and contents. If they were massively incorporated, at least half million of students of the System of Superior Education would be benefitted by the TIC. The objective of this rehearsal is to contribute to the reflexive analysis of this topic, through the examination of experiences and indicators. Underlying it also intends to sensitize professors and directive that overcoming: the iniquity of local access to Internet, the indifference of academics to acquire technological competitions, the absence of charismatic leaders, the lack of mechanisms that evaluate the use of TICs, and the equipment inadequacy, the TICs, included as a strategic tool in the teaching and learning process would offer a valuable opportunity to help to the development of Superior Education and its Mission.
