Rural B-Learning Contexts to Support the Physics Area – An Academic Performance Analysis

Keywords: high school, b-learning, physical area, dotLRN, educational web resources

Abstract

In this work, the academic performance of a tenth-grade physics course of high school is analyzed over three consecutive years, a b-learning educational context is configured in a rural area based on a framework that integrates Open Educational Resources (OER) to a Learning Management System (LMS). The performance of students who used b-learning is compared to other groups that received the same classes in a traditional way.
