- Identify and resolve issues arising from clinical practice.
- To promote student autonomy and cooperative learning.

The models of social interaction and communication skills among people have been introduced at the University, creating a paradigm for collaborative learning processes in the context of the information society and virtuality, which provides the tools to improve information channels and traditional media, allowing students more control of their work and teachers better track of their activities, all thanks to the creation of so-called "virtual campus".
The methodology we propose, "FAQS Tutorial Liquid System" (FTLS), intended to encourage students to further their own learning, based on the identification of gaps in knowledge and / or skills resulting from the implementation of clinical practice, combining classical methodologies in problem solving clinical areas with 2.0 tools.
The characteristics of "FTLS" are: Formulation of question to identifying knowledge gaps; finding information On Line and tutoring; first virtual environment of cooperative learning and group tutoring On Line; cooperative Learning On Line.

During the period of clinical practice (Practicum IV, third year of the Bachelor of Nursing at the University of Oviedo, and in the course of Grade III advanced practicum in Gimbernat Nursing Colleges, attached to the University Autónoma of Barcelona), students face in their nursing degree, as professionals, physical, psychological, social and technological, problems wich themselves are derived from those services, which require appropriate treatment and solution. Enabling students to find this information, or purchase through participation in cooperative learning environments, promotes better academic and professional future. This project also includes cooperative learning, the individual and group action tutorial
This will have a MOODLE virtual environment, which allows:
- Chat and Chatting: This will be used for communication between students and teachers.
- Forum: a virtual space for the discussion and debate of information asynchronously.
They will use three types of forum:
-General: in which students provide the information derived from the doubts identified and resolved during the course of clinical practice. The format of the information is: question-solution-sources consulted.
-Discussion Simple: managed by the administrator tutor. Its purpose will be to order the information provided by students at the “General” about specific topics.
-News Forum: which include other relevant independent academic information for students.

Currently there are no specific results because it is a project that will be developed during the months of April and May. In the month of July we will be able to present data and results of the project.
Even so, we relate the indicators to be used for the analysis:
- Quantification by the student of the time that has been used
in each of the phases and activities.
- Administration of a satisfaction survey.
- Percentage of student participation, of questions identified and sources of information and the quality of information sources
Finally, we performed a descriptive analysis of the proposed categories and new creations that have been generated during the "Learning Cooperative ".
Tutorial, cooperative learning, 2.0 tools, innovation knowledge.
