This work presents the procedure for the virtualization and implementation in an e-learning platform (Claroline and Moodle) of a course about a thermodynamic system using the information provided by the professors.
The final result is the organization and virtualization of all necessary information to teach the course on-line using an e-learning platform. The didactic information is struc-tured and organized for easy reading on a computer screen. In every section, tools and exercises are included for students’ self-evaluation and for social interaction among the students and the professors.
The starting point of this work is the collection of the information from the professors of the course. They provided the information and the didactic documents in different for-mats, and of course, this information was not structured uniformly.
The final result (structured, organized and virtualized didactic documents) was achieved after a laborious process which includes the use of the following e-learning tools.
a) Production of the didactic material: all the information was formatted as paginated HTML. It includes images, plots and animated diagrams.
b) Self-evaluation: It includes questionnaires with multiple choices, tests, crosswords, etc. but also conventional exercises that the students have to solve and send back to the professor for evaluation. The self-evaluation items are included in the text for continu-ous evaluation, but they are also an independent tool.
c) Social interaction tools: the e-learning platform contains the following social tools: Forum, FAQ’s, Wiki, Chat.
d) Complementary tools: video (streaming), professor recordings (audio-classes and audio-video-classes), knowledge pills.
