G. Largo Ordóñez, J. Guevara Bolaños

Universiad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas (COLOMBIA)
The project is being developed by research groups DIT and METIS of the Distrital University -UDFJC- for the professorship and the student community, which raises the improvement of the didactic competitions implementing the Online English Course ELT supported by the Virtual Platform DIT Online that offers additional services like management of information about users, account in the Virtual Platform, forum and blogs. The project is composed of three phases for the Online English Course in line as for the virtual platform: evaluation, validation and optimization phases. For the evaluation phase, the Systemic Model of Quality -MOSCA- has implemented as methodology of evaluation of the platform fixing a matrix orientated to the product and to the process with internal and contextual aspects which intervene in the users. Aspects like functionality, usability, reliability, efficiency and portability have been considered to bear in mind from the already established levels conventional corresponding to dimensions, categories, characteristics, sub typical and metric that might obey to name in the ISO 27004. The evaluation of the virtual course consists of the evaluation of the general quality of the environment, didactic and methodological quality and technical quality setting up weighting of variables as navigability, didactic contents, interactivity, and versatility among others. Later there were generated strategies of identification of the characteristics proposed in the methodology on the real environment (lessons) between teachers and students then to integrate technological and didactic resources. With the development of this research one expects to obtain specific information about the characteristics that a course and a virtual platform must have, know the obstacles that prevent the interaction adapted between the teachers and students with the technological resources and to tell finally with a Online English Course for the education of the Englishman and with a virtual platform that it could fulfill in a full way its function in the educational context for the one that was designed.
