This paper describes an initiative which uses low-cost mobile robots to create robotics courses and learning environment to support the teaching of computing and many other related disciplines. The pursued principle is that lower cost alternatives that can meet the educational needs, since it is accompanied by an environment with friendly software interface. In this sense, the hardware interface was developed to allow the computer to process data from the sensors and actuators of the mobile robot. This architecture is adequate because of the acceptance of students in their use, since the environment is unrolled within a familiar platform to them.
