The great popularity of the Internet and the widespread use of the World Wide Web are promoting a new methodology for distance learning. The main advantage of the Internet based courses is possibility to promote a bi-directional communication between the students and the professor and to highly, motivate the student due to an adequate feedback. This poster describe the introduction of Internet tools (such as www, e-mail, IRC, FTP, mailing list) in the distance learning postgraduate program of the 'Magister de Redes' (http://www.linti.unlp.edu.ar/master) of the UNLP . The ongoing experience was successful due to certain facts that are stated in the poster which also mentions some drawbacks and the strategy for overcoming them. The distance-learning version of the program started in 1998 as way to reduce the obstacles for he students (professionals from the engineering and the computer science field in the networking area), mainly the traveling expenses and the time it takes due the large geography of our country and the long distances.
