Learning Models

Online

The on-line educational model in which educational platforms are connected to the Internet or Intranet. Through these platforms, there is information, planning, and communication systems, which allows professors and students to participate in virtual classrooms with various tools and learning applications, curriculum development, and evaluation including training materials, research, and links to other educational resources.

Academic activities take place asynchronously where the professors and students do not attend simultaneously to develop educational activities. Also, academic activities take place online or synchronously where there is simultaneous attendance for interaction between professors and students.

Online

Hybrid

The hybrid educational model is characterized by systematically combining the in-person modality with virtual modality, based on television, radio, digital, and telephone physical resources, technological tools, and the interaction between professors and students. The educational platforms can be developed totally or partially autonomously by the students, that is, without requiring the presence or permanent guidance of the professor during its development.
