Migration of the actual thing to virtual in the subject “Introduction to Computers” in Nursing Program at UCLA
The dean of health sciences at Lisandro Alvarado Centroccidental University is currently developing a system in which the traditional onsite programs for medicine and nursing are being migrated to the virtual system. Professors from the course “An introduction to Computing” are also working on making curricular changes to adapt to the new system. This is being done in four stages: 1) teacher training- to manage online subjects; 2) course design changes; 3) the selection of technological tools and materials and 4) the uploading of the course to the Moodle platform, which is the virtual learning environment. The first three phases have already been completed, but the fourth stage is currently being implemented. As a result, the training received positive feedback by professors, i.e. those who took on the challenge of migrating to e-learning. However, the burden of academic work impeded the smooth transition to making this change. The technological equipment that was being used by the university governors was therefore not not fully modernized to satisfy the needs of profesors or to effectively deliver online courses.
