Abstract
Technologies and especially information and communication technologies (ICT) are barrier breaking in the current social scenario. Their use is becoming essential for any professional, and their scope of use is becoming particularly widespread in education due to the existence of communication outside the classroom through e-learning tools. Universities, which play an innovative role in education, are using ICT-based approaches to adapt their learning methodology. In this paper, we present a model where students from first-world universities prepare and adapt course contents for use in educational institutions in developing countries. The objectives of this initiative of students' participating in e-learning projects with developing countries are to improve their motivation, develop a set of cross-curricular competencies, and transfer technologies within the scope of university development cooperation.}, keywords={course contents;cross-curricular development;e-learning;educational institutions;educational universities;information and communication technologies;student motivation;university development cooperation;computer aided instruction;educational courses;educational institutions;
