Allow me to introduce you to our Learning Technologies team here in Costa Rica.

MAF-Learning Technologies has been working in Costa Rica in some form or another since 2004. We became officially registered as an organizational entity in Costa Rica in 2009, and the current members of the team have been together for well over a year.

Our team has supported projects in 16 different countries, mainly in the Spanish-speaking Americas.
