Nowadays, education is a lifelong process that is not only carried out in the classroom. With the rise of mobile technology, it has become possible to study and learn almost everywhere: in the office, at home and even while traveling. While this kind of education is now possible and valued, there is still a lot of work to do in order to position online learning at the level of quality and prestige that traditional classroom education possesses. National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) has a decade of experience in a tremendous investment of effort and resources that support the importance of online education. In this paper we will talk about different initiatives at UNAM: the "Learning University Network" (“Red Universitaria de Aprendizaje”, RUA), which will be the tool for relating educational resources with the current curricula; MOOCs; learning apps; the Mathematics Institutional Learning Improvement Program; and “All UNAM online” (“Toda la UNAM en Línea”) that aims to make all of our public domain content available to worldwide users under an open access policy.
