This research seeks to propose an analysis and solution to support classroom-based teaching in Colombia in the Department of ChocÃ³, which is located in a rural area and has been subject of many social projects for the development of its population. Due to the disparities in the different regions in the country, the education sector is forced to look for work environments that show a greater benefit and favor isolated communities with delayed development. For this reason, a Virtual Learning Community is proposed in the area of study to improve the educational conditions and how the use of technology and Open Educational Resources could contribute to it. The participant of this study were the teachers, students, parents, and educational figures of the school. Results show that teacher training is essential so that they can act as leaders in their community
