Teachers and educators have the mission of transmitting the best of their knowledge using the most from available resources and following established programmatic guidelines. The continuous evolution of technology, proposing new tools and apparatus for knowledge representation and transmission, has offered innumerous options for the mission of teaching. However, more then providing a wide set of experimental setups, or multimedia contents, would be important to determine the best content for each student. Hypothetically, the best content would be defined as the most suited to promote a seamless transmission of knowledge, according to the student status and his readiness to receive those concepts. Human Computer Interfaces can promote a better interoperability between those who teach and those who learn and can better adapt contents and transmission methods to the needs and abilities of each student in class. The present paper proposes a framework for adapting knowledge transmission, either local or remotely, to the needs and circumstances of each teaching act.
