NetUEM: The aim of the Universidad Europea de Madrid is to boost the use of information and communication technologies on all its degree programs as a means of supporting and complementing teaching practice. The use of a Virtual Campus, developed on the Moodle platform as a complementary tool for working, increases the options for distributing knowledge and for communications between students and professors, making it easier to provide personalized attention and monitoring through virtual tutoring sessions, encouraging independent learning, enhancing student skills such as searching for and organizing information, planning and the capacity for debate.
The Online Campus is integrated into the UEM's academic management system, which means that all teachers who have uploaded courses to it have automatic access to a virtual space on the Moodle platform associated with each course. Also, every student enrolled in a degree program will be linked in with the courses they have signed up for on the Online Campus.
Using the Online Campus to provide students with documents in electronic format, to enable students to submit assignments in an organized and timely manner, to communicate with students on a particular course in a fast and efficient way and to carry out individual and group tasks (wikis, forums, chats, queries, etc.), enables teachers to perform their role in a fast and dynamic way and to establish an alternative means of communicating with students outside the classroom.
Throughout this process, teachers are provided with institutional support, with access to class-based and online training courses. Each faculty also has a mentor who can advise and help teachers with matters such as technical aspects of using the platform and adapting their subject matter to the virtual environment.
