OROZCO SANTA MARIA, Ana María  and  GARCIA RAMIREZ, Ma. Teresa. Self-perception of learning skills in virtual learning environments. CPU-e. Rev. Investig. Educ [online]. 2017, n.25, pp.144-167. ISSN 1870-5308.

Universities add new blended or fully online programs and students face a solo learning that requires skills that are most needed in these modalities. With this in mind, the purpose of this study was to explore the perception that university students enrolled in technology mediated courses have about their skills to become digitally literate. An investigation was conducted with quantitative descriptive scope at a public university in Queretaro. A survey was used as data collection technique focused to determine the self- perception about skills required for learning in virtual environments. The study showed that there are significant differences among skills and that the lowest levels are located in autonomous learning and use of Web 2.0 tools. It is concluded that the inclusion of instructional strategies that develop the different digital literacy dimensions is essential to instruct students.
