Abstract

The technological evolution involves important changes in the knowledge generation and transmission processes. In this context, the development of virtual learning environments permits the establishment of learning-based instructions, where student-centered learning is emphasized. The objective of this paper is to analyze the creation of explicit and tacit knowledge that entails the virtual learning environment established in a subject of Economics. Results of the questionnaires indicate that an online platform is a tool that provides explicit and tacit knowledge in our students, in which students’ capacity improvement is emphasized. Besides, information and communication technologies allow students to obtain a better comprehension and retention of knowledge that is reflected in the students’ grades. Hence, the necessity of developing educational policies that promotes the use of these technologies.
