It is a fact that the notion of education has been changing over the last years, mainly because of information and communication technologies (ICTs). In this globalized world, we are swamped by information, and the key issue is to surf it and choose the appropriate bit. This wealth of information, and the need of constantly updating knowledge in order to carry out our work in the way we are demanded to by society, turn learning into lifelong self-training. This article aims to present the experience of collaborative work in a virtual learning scenario held by the University of Salamanca, Clay Formación Internacional, and Asociación Logo in the continuing education and specialist course Technologies and networked training methodologies: Tutor online. Being former students, now we belong to the tutor and scientific team. The Tutor online project (TOL) is an instance of how to widespread quality continuing education and smooth away the access to it. Its asynchronous nature allows each individual to adapt it to their own particular time and space needs.
