I am a Principal Professor at the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Polytechnic Institute of the Coast (ESPOL), located in Guayaquil, Ecuador. I am also a researcher at the Information Technology Center of ESPOL where I am coordinating the Research Program on Teaching and Learning Technologies. In addition I coordinate the work of the Latin American Community on Learning Objects (LACLO), a network of researchers and practitioners around Latin America interested in the creation, adaptation and use of learning technologies in the region. As part of this group, I am involved in the Latin American Open Textbooks Initiative (LATIn) that works towards the local production of open educational resources. At a global level: I represent my University at the ARIADNE Foundation, one of the oldest Learning Object Repositories; I coordinate the technical group of the Global Learning Object Exchange (GLOBE), the global federation of Learning Object Repositories, and I am part of the technical team of the EU-Funded AgInfra Project.
