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.
