The European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that launches along with Bologne process implies learning is more than master class. Memory is not the only way to pass an exam. It is necessary to design new connections between teachers and students in order to achieve a deep knowledge of a topic, thus design of new tools of training constitutes a goal in the modern education sciences. However, conclusive experiences show a need for assessment of results.

The degree in Pharmacy consists of subjects from many different areas, from biology or physics to pharmaceutical technology or drug research. The present curriculum has the basic subjects in the two first years. Students do not reveal much interest in these subjects because of its difficulty, making learning tedious and unsuccessful.

The aim of the study is to make available to the students a variety of e-learning activities in order to of attract their attention and that encouraged them to work continuously from the beginning of the course, knowing that success in learning does not depend just on the abilities of the students; but also of the teacher influence.

The present work has been carried out with students pursuing Pharmacy Degree enrolled in three different subjects, General Physics, Physical-Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry, in the third or fourth semester of the studies.

According with results, students that regularly participate doing their homework, mainly reach the threshold to pass the exams, on the contrary those who fail are the ones that leave the homework and hardly participate on virtual activities. There is a real and significate relation between alumni with higher marks and those which are regularly involved in our proposals. We can conclude about the goodness of our strategies to motivate the students in learning process.
