ABSTRACTThe use of educational software in Medicine is widespread. The project Galenomedia was created by the Ministry of Public Health with the aim of building learning hyperenvironment for this career, to be generalized to all colleges of the country. The assimilation of Medical Informatics II is complex for students; this course prepares them for doing the research they will face. Objective: to develop a learning hyperenvironment on the topic Sampling and Estimation, from the subject Medical Informatics II. Methodology: Modeling was performed prior to the project. We determined the script. For the preparation of the application was used SADHEA support, a Cuban free interactive tool to create software (available on the web). Results: The program includes contents, exercises, games and a glossary of terms. It provides access to knowledge and exercise of multiple type feedback technologies available and offers the possibility to consult other references. A survey was applied to three groups of students who rated the hyperenvironment as good. Conclusions: The learning hyperenvironment developed contributes to the development of a culture in knowledge management, fostering the learning of the subject by students of medicine.
