Tools that create or support a virtual learning environment.

Nowadays, thanks to technological advances, we can count on a great variety of tools that
we can have according to the pedagogical objectives. These tools are of great help to create
virtual spaces as well as to create virtual materials or to plan lessons, etc.

Among the most used we have:

The ActivExpression. (basic application on the Promethean board)

provides teachers with real-time information about students'


understanding and progression of their learning, while students work at
their own pace or as a class.

Blackboard. (learning management system)

contains the necessary functions to create the necessary documents to
administer a course that is accessed remotely by students and using
the Internet as a medium.

allows communication between students and teachers in a
closed and private environment as microblogging, created for a
specific use in higher secondary education.

paper exams. It includes a question editing bank which
allows you to quickly create questions in any format, as
well as create study guides or test guides in just

outcomes

These tools help teachers quickly create interactive instructional resources or curricula that
are then stored online. This allows documents to be edited collaboratively and
asynchronously, provides places for teachers to upload and make resources available to
students, as a way to track student progress and a place to publish assignments. Supporting
the sharing of resources is a way of stimulating student interest in a topic.
It is a way to ensure that all work and discussion in the virtual classroom occurs within an
educational space and under the teacher's umbrella. In conclusion, they are tools that
improve the teaching-learning progress and offer variety to satisfy the pedagogical
objectives supporting the virtual learning environment.
