Actually new technologies have powerful influence on all aspects of our society and education is not an exception. Many technologies have an impact on the way we teach and learn. However, it is a well known fact that student’s learning performance of science in general and physics in particular is not as good as expected. It has been found that students respond positively to new subjects when teachers are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area. Although there is a wide debate about the influence on computer-assisted education in physics courses, we consider that computational physics provides a broader and more flexible education than a traditional physic course. In this work we show the main features of a blended learning for bachelor’s teachers. The objective of this course is to make an online physic course for news university students. The aim of this course is to create an online learning community which helps both teachers and students to have a virtual space where we can share knowledge.
