Virtual education also known as e-learning is a form of distance education that is aided primarily Internet and its many tools. Universities twentieth century saw at the e-learning system, an alternative to start teaching some courses, specialties, and as time has been moving, now offers undergraduate (professional careers) and in more recent years even offer postgraduate education.
Since the beginning of virtual universities in the late twentieth century, the information and communication technologies have evolved exponentially, with changes in the models of teaching, learning and educational management.
Therefore, those models that explained how to work in virtual universities in the twentieth century, are currently facing not only the incorporation of new technologies but also new educational models such as competency-based model and thus the challenges and adequacy of educational elements such as the roles of teachers now called tutors, the student activities and digital administration
This article presents the main results of research being done at the National Polytechnic Institute (Mexico) from the early experiences of implementing a Masters online using the Moodle learning platform. We will compare the proposed models for virtual universities and the reality that is lived in a particular online Master of this institution.
Even though the basic elements of any model of Virtual University includes considering the users, production and design courses, equipment / technology, training, among other things, we can mention that despite the decades and technological development, virtual education not only aims to provide online content.
