The research was conducted in a public university that has several academic programs. The investigation was exploratory, a cross-sectional study was used. This was carried out through the application of a semi-structured survey with general data and frequency of use of computer tools, to a sample of 428 students, from a population of 12 000 students, then with the data obtained, a model was estimated by the method of ordinary least squares. In the academic results it was found that the variables female gender, scholarship and semester positively influence the increase of the average of qualifications. Likewise, the results of ICT that favor academic performance were the use of academic google, the blog, tools to create multimedia material (Mindomo, NaikuDeck, Camtasia) and the tool on identity management and digital security. It is concluded that the ICT tool with the greatest impact is NaikuDeck, since it increases academic performance by 0.18 points.
