Abstract: In the last years, traditional teaching has turned around to blended teaching, enabling students and teachers to have a continuous exchange of documentation by using new technologies in the classroom. This kind of teaching is increasingly significant as it combines traditional methods with innovative applications that allow online tracking. This proposal is applied in the subjects “Construction of Structures I and II” of the Degree in Building Engineering; it implements new methodologies as an alternative to traditional education, strengthening theoretical and practical contents by performing exercises that are corrected in a participatory way using online tools. The aim of this paper is to analyse the use of these tools (such as online tests, participation in forums, virtual tutorials, download of documentation, etc.) in the Moodle platform to encourage interaction and learning. The delivery of online exercises reinforces the acquisition of specific skills and facilitates communication both between teacher-student and between the students themselves. In conclusion, the use of these online tools offered by the Moodle platform has enabled continuous and participatory learning in Construction of Structures; this new proposal is highly valued by students as it allows direct and personalized monitoring by teachers.
