To support management processes of teaching and learning, universities have used Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Due to this, for universities is important to monitor the usage and users' attitudes towards the use of virtual available tools. That is why this paper researches attitudes towards the use of virtual learning tools from students of two different institutions: Metropolitan Institute of Technology and University Institution Escolme. The proposed methodology is based on a self-administered questionnaire and quantitative data collection instrument applied to 144 students of marketing and management science programs. Among the results, a positive perception against the advantages offered by the use of virtual tools in their learning processes due to time savings in the trip to the institution and granted independence in the educational process. A positive perception of students about the use of virtual tools comes from the autonomy that these tools give them on their own learning process.
