In November, the Virtual Learning Environment of SUS (AVASUS, in Portuguese acronym) reached a historic mark: 200 courses registered in the platform. The greatness of this initiative is confirmed with the help of other numbers: there are more than 456,000 registered users and more than 972,000 enrollments made (since the same user can enroll in more than one course). AVASUS is an initiative developed by the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, through the Laboratory of Technological Innovation in Health (LAIS), in partnership with the Secretariat of Distance Education (SEDIS).

The 200th course offers knowledge about document management. It covers general aspects of document management, including: objectives and importance, brief history of training related to activity within the Ministry of Health, notions of Archivology, documentary values, concept, classification, evaluation, transfer and deletion of documents, among others. In addition, guidelines on technical assistance offered by the Archives Coordination and made available to the Ministry of Health units located in Brasilia are also presented.

A reference in distance learning, AVASUS aims to promote integrated and accessible knowledge in health education. All modules are designed according to the needs of the Unified Health System (SUS) and aim to qualify the training of health professionals and workers.
