TAPIA-REPETTO, Gabriel; GUTIERREZ, Carla  e  TREMILLO-MALDONADO, Omar. New technologies in higher education. Perception study among students on the use of WhatsApp and Virtual Learning Environments (Moodle Platform). Odontoestomatología [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.33, pp.37-43.  Epub 01-Jun-2019.

The aim of this work was to have students evaluate the use of WhatsApp (WAP) and a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) at the School of Dentistry, UdelaR (Montevideo - Uruguay).

An observational descriptive study was conducted on students from the 2016 generation. A survey with five items was implemented, including three technological applications (WhatsApp, Moodle Platform and Polimedias), which were rated 0 to 12 points. As for WhatsApp, we asked about the possibility of clarifying doubts, sharing images, getting information, interacting with the teacher and classmates. The average score obtained was 10.77-10.63-10.63-10.63 and 9.20 for each item, respectively. In the VLE, the same items were included except for number two (access to class presentations), receiving an average score of 8.53-11.27-10.33-9.47 and 5.53. There is a high degree of acceptance of the different technologies, WhatsApp communication being more widely accepted than communication in the Moodle platform.
