Abstract

The research group E-Virtual from the Universidad de Medellin
has been working on the implementation of bimodal courses
since six years ago. In 2009, with the support of the Ministery of
National Education (MEN), it was implemented the non-face-toface
class modality with a virtual methodology in the pedagogic
framework of the University. This new activities took the group
to think about the didactic and pedagogic characteristics that
should be considered when face-to-face and virtual education
are combined. To achieve this, we asked lectures and students
about the perception of this new methodology. The data was
collected by combining qualitative and quantitative methods. As
a result, we obtained an introductory process, communicative
interactions, virtual learning objects, and clues about the use of
the platform. In this paper we provide the preliminary results of
our study, emphasizing on the positive aspects, and the aspects
to improve.
