RANGEL, Elaine Maria Leite et al. Evaluation by nursing students in virtual learning environments for teaching endocrine physiology. Acta paul. enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.24, n.3, pp. 327-333. ISSN 0103-2100. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21002011000300004.
OBJECTIVE: To describe the evaluation of the Virtual Learning Environment of TelEduc in teaching endocrine physiology for graduates of a nursing degree course at a public university in the state of Sao Paulo. METHODS: Cross-sectional, descriptive study with quantitative analysis of data and a sample of 44 students. To collect data, we used an instrument that included educational aspects of the virtual learning environment: content, interaction and activities, and technical aspects: response time and quality of the interface. RESULTS: In the evaluation of students, data indicated that for the majority of responses obtained, the items included the following characteristics: content (84.0%), interaction (83.2%), activities (89.3%), response time (94.0%), and interface quality (95.8%). CONCLUSION: The virtual learning environment, TelEduc, proved to be an effective tool to support the teaching of Endocrine Physiology.
