The REDLAED is a regional consortium of educational institutions and professionals interested in promoting education through the use of distance learning methods and techniques. REDLAED has over 100 prominent college and university members. It devotes to the planning and implementation of various forms of technical cooperation and multinational activities to further the development of this educational modality in Latin America and the Caribbean. REDLAED decided to give highest priority to four topics: environmental problems, literacy, women's issues, and teachers training. However, REDLAED still lacked the needed telecommunication capability to operate as a network.
