This study aims to evaluate the implementation of active learning methodologies in the subjects of Geographic Information Systems and Applied Remote Sensing. In Geographic Information Systems, additional practical work was proposed using new information technologies (open source software gvSIG) since the 2007/08 academic year. In Applied Remote Sensing, practical work has always been proposed (2006/07 to 2009/10 academic years) with the development of a portfolio. In addition the Remote Sensing course is taught entirely in a computer classroom which allows to coordinate and to time the theoretical and practical lectures. The calculation of performance and success indicators showed that in Geographic Information Systems, the performance indicator increased significantly (13%) since these changes were applied. In Remote Sensing values greater than 70% and 90% was observed for performance and success indicators, respectively. The results of this study indicate that the use of active learning methodologies improved student performance.
