Abstract

We discuss the results of two e-learning experimental courses carried out in Mexico City which are a part of a research project whose goals are: to experience the teaching learning process through the electronic media via Internet. We worked focused on collaborative working and learning with new pedagogical models based on directed group work by means of assignments, goals, questions and problem solving. Some students manifested anguish as a result of the absence of face-to-face professors; there were differences in personalities, participation and collaboration, aspects that will have to be taken into account for future courses. The conclusion is collaborative work among participants must be promoted, not only letting everybody's interventions to be displayed but also encouraging participants to converse about these courses in public working together in solving problems, elaborating team projects, including evaluating each other.
