Abstract: The paper presents a brief overview about Cesgranrio Foundation, a private institution in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with educational, social and health purposes. During the last decades Cesgranrio has had a detached role in the field of evaluation in the country. Its experience, pioneer in several projects, led the academic staff to plan a Graduate Program on Evaluation. A Professional Master Course on Evaluation and lato sensu courses will be offered from 2007 on. These last ones are planned as web-based courses and demand a specific design that includes a platform to address a range of pedagogical and technical issues such as learning and design theory, hardware and software purchases, student support services, student assessment, student interaction, instructional strategies, security and firewalls, and staffing. More details about these web-based courses are available in the paper.
