Abstract

Based on the study “e-Learning Uses at Andalusian Universities: State of the Art and Analysis of Good Practices”, the main aim of the article is to establish what perceptions students have of their experience of participating in the Virtual Andalusian Campus (CAV), particularly in relation to a number of variables like their satisfaction with e-learning, their expectations before and after the experience, and the elements that they considered to be more or less appropriate with regard to the development of the experience. Some of the conclusions drawn from the research project underscored the potential of these types of action to foster students’ virtual mobility and showed that the existence of different platforms was not a problem for the majority of students, that the success of the experience was due to the involvement of university teaching staff, and that students’ attitudes at the start conditioned the results obtained and the perceptions of dynamics used by lecturers.
