“Spanish Universities have been immersed in an educational systemmainly based


on master classes, where the teacher transmitted a lot of information to the
students. In that system, students are helped by seminars and laboratory practice,
but they spend most of their time listening to lectures and taking notes. At the end
of the semester, they have to pass the final examination”

“According to pedagogical theories, as constructivism, problem-based learning, and


use of new technologies, to the requirements of new educative trends such as the
ECTS (a student-centred credit system), and to the requirements for Quality
approach, Spanish Universities have been acquiring new tools and new methods
for improving the educational system”

“Following the new trends in web-based learning, one of the projects supported
by the Centre, like others cited before, was a course management system for e-
learning, known as AulaWeb.”

“AulaWeb is, on the one hand, an information system of any course subject open to
all users of the net and, on the other hand, an interactive training, self-evaluation
and tracking system of student progress in this subject, use-restricted for students
and teachers. The whole interactivity is carried out by means of a browser and a
connection to the Internet”

“Using an ad hoc form, the student can send an electronic file with the answers to
the exercises in HTML, Word or another format. The file is stored in a document
database, and the corresponding teacher can access it. Once the content of the
exercise is corrected, teachers can mark it, and send their comments to the
student. Also, teachers can publish the exercise answer and monitor the students
that have sent it. There is also a self-evaluation module on the subject, based on a
question database… When concluding the exercise, the system offers students the
possibility to check their exercise and to compare their answers with the right
solutions. Finishing the test provides the user’s level at that moment and updates
the values of the database. The evaluation of the exercise is, therefore, automatic
and students and their teacher can access the results of the evaluation.”

“Through evaluation by students and teachers, and practical applications of the


described educational projects, we have found these advantages:

• the role of information and communication technologies in a new learning


environment is, at present, well established in the Centre;
• the participation of students in the learning process has increased, as developer
and user of the new tools; and
• the main objectives of the projects, as summarized at the beginning of this text,
have been reached to a great extent.”

“The change from teacher-driven to learner-centered education requires, first and


foremost, a change in attitudes and behaviors as well as institutional frameworks
and infrastructures, and this is a slow process. Finally, both teachers and students
sometimes have a passive response to innovative teaching tools. Nevertheless, the
necessity to implement new methodology will play an important role to improve
these questions.”
