In this paper, the authors present a cloud system that incorporate tools developed in HTML5 and JQuery technologies, which are offered to professors and students in the development of a teaching methodology called flipped classroom, where the theoretical content is usually delivered by video files and self-assessment tools that students can display from home. This system aims to eliminate the technical limitations to facilitate communication and a real learning process by monitoring and evaluating the students and teachers. Highlighting main functions, the authors do find: the wizard of quality content, visual interactive wizard, the audio note as tool for audio records, and finally the graphical evaluator that provides a graphical and intuitive result, providing a clear image of the theoretical and practical difficulties that students experience.
