EXPERIENCE AND RESULTS OF THE BLENDED LEARNING TRAINING COURSE SENSORS AND SENSOR NETWORKS
The accelerated technological development and the growing demand for continuous and up-to-date training of university graduates and professionals in Cuban companies, together with the need to promote research activities, have motivated the design and implementation of this training course based on the use of virtual environments. The professional training course Sensors and Sensor Networks was given for companies in the Electronics Group in the form of a distance, synchronous, blended learning course.
This article provides information on the procedures for prior coordination, methodological preparation and content development. The evaluation of the course was carried out through tutored mini-projects with asynchronous monitoring. The defence of the work was face-to-face in front of an examining board made up of the course lecturers, allowing individual marks to be awarded. The new practical experiences ̶ acquired and presented here ̶ in the use of distance or blended learning models are of current interest, as these models are becoming increasingly widespread in the training of human resources in Cuban companies.
