Implementación de la Educación a Distancia a partir de un Programa Presencial de Ingeniería en Ciencia y Tecnología de Alimentos: Revisión de Literatura

J. D. Corona Flores


La implementación de la educación a distancia a partir de la modalidad presencial, ha tenido un gran auge en los países en desarrollo debido a los beneficios que tiene, logrando una mayor cobertura de matrícula estudiantil que con la modalidad tradicional, no es posible alcanzar. El presente artículo proporciona un estudio del estado del arte, que revisa cuáles son los factores que intervienen para llevar a cabo la transición de la educación presencial a la modalidad en línea, y que sirve como un marco de referencia para aplicarlo en diferentes programas de educación superior que están en el proceso de cambio de la modalidad presencial a la modalidad en línea. Se considera además la aportación que las teorías de la educación a distancia  han tenido en el cambio mencionado anteriormente.
