Abstract

Information and communication technologies offer us new possibilities to improve the way we develop our work as educators and give our students new opportunities to relate with us and other stakeholders in the process of learning. In higher education we can differentiate three different teaching styles, the traditional one, with the need of the presence of the students and the teacher in a classical classroom, the distance teaching style that substitutes the personal interaction in the class between student and professor with a distance relation based in different materials, and the virtual style, in which a permanent relation between students and lectures is established via a network. Some past analysis have tried to measure theimportance and variables that have an impact in the implementation of information and communication technologies and the final results achieved for each of the different styles. In this chapter, we try to study the variables that have a greater impact in the IT implementation and final success and try to integrate all them in a model. Future studies should try to contrast the presented model in the three main mentioned university styles.
