The Mozambican Government adopted Distance Education in order to offer study opportunities to populations living far from large urban centres and who could not reach traditional face-to-face teaching. The aim of this article is to demonstrate the contribution of online education, adopted by Higher Institute of Education and Science during a period in which the lack of access to higher education promoted an upsurge of national inequality and the development of distance education was focused on a blended perspective. The research was designed with Mixed method, using the case study method, based on three sources (observation, interviews and documents). We used SPSS 21 (IBM) Amonk, New York, USA and Excel (Microsoft) Washington DC, USA for statistical analysis. In terms of results, it can be seen that the online modality, allows many Mozambicans to have access to higher education in Mozambique through the Virtual Learning Environment.
