Abstract: Nowadays, the use of ICTs in education is proof of innovation, quality, and ease of access. Aware of this challenge, higher education institutions are making efforts in line with technological advances by incorporating tools that promote more and better learning results. The aim of this investigation is to determine how much backing Moodle virtual classrooms provide to support classroom work at the university in the case study. Moodle can be used to improve, renovate and motivate the teaching-learning process in the classroom. To confirm this hypothesis, we conducted a summary of previous research carried out from the perspective of students, teachers and authorities, and considered the agreements and disagreements among these groups. We evaluated perceived usefulness, ease of use and other variables to validate the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) of the investigation. The results show that Moodle virtual classrooms are an accepted tool in terms of obtained benefits. We also determi ned that it is necessary to implement training in using Moodle, as well having policies and incentives to increase its use. (More)
