In this paper, we present support for using a newly developed software tool for applying ICTs to the palaeography learning process. The teaching of writing and historical documents is a subject traditionally taught at the university by the method of teaching reading to students in the class. Now, we are introducing new ways of learning to read documents from the XV and XVI centuries by developing new materials for students to learn independently because Palaeography and Diplomatic learning at Spanish universities isn't very developed. Sources that deal with this theme include: a) Palaeography and Internet: new challenges in the teaching / learning; b) New technologies for university learning Palaeography and Diplomatic; c) Learning Palaeography and the virtual world.

Keywords: Palaeography, Diplomatic, Modern History (XV-XVI Centuries), Teaching Materials, Teaching Online
