Oral and Dental Histology, Embryology and Anatomy are disciplines included in the Morphological Sciences which knowledge allows to understand physiology and pathology. On the other hand, the methodological changes resulting from universal access to information and communication enabled by Internet and the use of Information Technology and Communication have led to the emergence of a new paradigm of education. From this new paradigm our goal was to develop within the Virtual Histology Project the ODONTOWEB virtual site aimed at students of Health Sciences and especially those who attend the subject Histology and Embryology, Faculty of Dentistry, National University of Cordoba, Argentina. In the Home Page ODONTOWEB, the information (images, study guides, identification of images and slogans to find literature) is organized as follows: 1 - TISSUE 2- COORDINATION SYSTEMS 3-SYSTEMS RESPONSIBLE FOR TRANSPORTATION AND DEFENSE, 4 – SYSTEMS RESPONSIBLE FOR NUTRITION, RESPIRATORY and URINARY. We believe that the Internet applied to education, largely meets the needs of information, both in contents and methods and resources, allowing understanding that the greatest value of this network for education, is to be a system of dissemination of knowledge and a space to meet and collaborate, indispensable in the educational process. KEY WORDS: internet, education, virtual histology, ODONTOWEB, dentistry.
