HAL-300 is a system that implements asynchronous communication between teacher and student for distance courses and automates the execution of actions that must be performed by the teacher, enabling the teacher to concentrate on the creative activity of individualization. This improves upon many e-learning systems, which are not prepared to deal with the unique situation of a student seeking distance education, resulting in courses that contain learning activities that are not contextualized to the reality of the learner. This software was created to realize a methodology of distance learning in which the teacher acts as an adviser to the study of each student, understanding their needs from asynchronous dialogs, enabling the creation and selection of content and teaching activities that are contextualized to the reality of the learner.
