Abstract

The management models for assigning courses to professors in higher education have shown the need to involve technologies for the construction of homogeneous virtual classrooms. This work presents a proposal for the creation of pilot virtual classrooms that allow a quick start of the teaching-learning process in first year students, measuring its impact. The objective is to determine the levels of acceptance of pre-existing significant learning resources in large groups of the same subject. The results, collected through a survey of 64 participants who passed the Programming and Linear Algebra course of the Engineering Careers at Universidad Politécnica Salesiana of Guayaquil, in Ecuador, reflect satisfaction values that reach 91%. In addition, the content of the classrooms influences a 94% positivity in learning and a 94% usefulness from the students’ perspective. The limitations found suggest a continuous improvement in the early year’s teacher assignment management model. It is expected to carry out a following study based on the experience of the teachers responsible for the courses in a longitudinal work for the next courses to be offered. This work contributes to the development of good practices in the educational management of higher education institutions.
