Some knowledge areas, as mathematics, physics and programming, are considered difficult to teach and learn, since they entail working with abstract concepts that frequently cannot be easily visualized, and because this, they are difficult to learn to many students. This concept learning deficiency resides frequently in the use of obsolete teaching methods, which causes a boring and little stimulating learning process. This is shown in the students’ low academic performance in this kind of knowledge areas. The development of Information Technologies (IT), and its use in education, has generated a new educative paradigm. In this context, Learning Objects (LO) are becoming a promising alternative based on technology, to solve the problem of students’ low academic performance. The study presented in this paper, consisted on the evaluation of the use of LO to increase academic performance on computer science students.
