The Distance Education together the internet became as an effective tool in the teaching-learning students, breaking down barriers imposed by time and distance. The literature review in the area, the analysis of the politicalpedagogical projects of health courses, as well as the information available on the Internet and the knowledge of the 150 fourth graders of the Federal University of São Carlos through a structured questionnaire served as support for the creation of the prototype. The data obtained from the questionnaire were coded, organized and analyzed quantitatively using descriptive statistics by the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS ®).
