EXPERIENCES IN E-LEARNING AND B-LEARNING IN BOTANICAL SCIENCES (MYCOLOGY, WEED SCIENCE AND PLANT PATHOLOGY) IN LOCAL AND REGIONAL VIRTUAL CAMPUSES

E. Gallego, J. Sanchez

University of Almeria (SPAIN)
Since 2005, the authors have taught students various virtual subjects (theorical and laboratory practices) in the field of Mycology, Weed Science and Plant Pathology at the University of Almeria (UAL). Specifically, four of them have been adapted to b-learning in the UAL Virtual Classroom and one to e-learning to the Virtual Andalusian Campus (CAV). This experience continued to reflect on the differences, advantages, student response and other aspects of the different methods of teaching in the field of botanical sciences. It is interesting because of the peculiarities which contribute to the subjects, students, faculty and university. This reflection follows the experiences of subjects in curriculum phase of extinction by the Bologna process, hence the importance of this current review for future comparative educational studies. In addition, it reflects on the keys to success in these subjects and the possibility of adaptation to extend its range.
