On Wednesday, April 6, 2016, at the Hotel Montana, in the presence of the Ambassador of France, Elisabeth Béton Délègue, Haiti launched its first indigenous online teaching platform THESS (Hybrid Technology for Education, Science and Knowledge). This program has been developed by the "École Supérieure d'Infotronique d'Haïti" with an objective to increase youth employment opportunity by facilitating access to university education. The students and professionals can learn the program through a "student kit" which includes a tablet computer, an internet connection and a subscription to the digital library Cyberlibris. The program is supported by the Embassy of France in Haiti and by the AUF. THESS is a platform that integrates multiple services: online education, university governance, educational management, collaborative tools (forum, chat). It is open to all members of the universities of the Conference of Rectors and Presidents of Universities of Haiti (CORPUHA).
