Abstract

Educational research at the National Technological Institute of Mexico (TecNM) covers the thematic areas: Educational Models and Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, Evaluation and Performance Indicators, and Information and Communication Technologies. In this last thematic area, an educational research project was developed, which involves Virtual Learning Environments (VLE). The objective was determined to measure the impact of using a VLE as a tool in the teaching-learning process of the blending learning classes (face-to-face classes and online activities) of the Technology of Ciudad Valles. The methodology is mixed, qualitative and quantitative. In the quantitative, the number of teachers using AVA, the number of students in a Blending Learning (B-Learning) course, and the number of courses designed in Moodle are determined. In the qualitative, the impact of B-Learning on students is analyzed; determining the degree of motivation and performance that is generated when using AVA and the ability to use information technology to generate their learning strategies. A componential and structural analysis of the AVA used in the institute is presented, the research hypothesis is disclosed: the use of an AVA as a b-learning strategy improves the level of performance of student competencies compared to students who follow face-to-face learning strategies. The way in which the research is carried out, the frame of reference and relevant results and conclusions are shown.
