Distance interaction among educational communities is becoming increasingly important. Courses and talks are shared among institutions and individuals who are located in different places. The Telepresence tool, developed by Eafit and Universidad del Quindío, permits course sharing among the institutions. Instructors from one institution can teach students of the other one, thereby sharing the positive features of each course. In this paper, we present the recent improvements of the Telepresence tool. We also report on the use of the tool in a Multi-Variable Calculus course, designed in accordance to the Teaching for Understanding (TFU) pedagogical framework. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
