The data has been collected from the system of communication and in academic office. Results: 88% of the students finished the course, and the difficulty in accessing the system was reported by 67% of them. 92% of respondents preferred the Forum because the scales of shifts limited the chats. 32% of the students approved the methodology of the course, however 70% still preferred face-to-face courses for they value dialogue or because they do not dominated the technological process.
