Abstract

The university is currently involved - within Europe - in a process of coordinating higher education for adaptation to the new ECTS European credits, which implies changing from a teacher-centred model (teacher conveys knowledge) to a learner-centred model, a real challenge. Since 1996, the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) has been carrying out the "Campus Virtual de la UAB" project. This platform fulfils several roles that aim at providing an answer to this challenge. This article will focus on how to use the communication and discussion functionalities between teachers and students, between students themselves, and on monitoring of the students' learning process.
