The difficulty due to the lack of access to broadband internet has made the government to contract a study for the development of a project to break the barrier of digital exclusion in that region. The article details the technique deployed to distribute materials on a large scale through digital medium, by which the students can develop activities and send them to teachers during attendance classes at study centers. The project is at implementation phase, but it is expected that it be useful also for other Brazilian States.
