In Latin America, the digital economy gap continues to widen compared to other world regions. Due to this, updating teaching and digital convergence are aspects that cannot wait to shorten the technological gap and thus achieve greater competitiveness economically in the region. This paper presents a bibliographic analysis of the progress in implementing asynchronous study modalities in Latin America and the academic self-management of students throughout the region. The main results show a digital gap in education technologies adoption concerning other world regions and methodologies still based on the traditional teaching model.
