The objective of the project is to use different CIT tools integrated in environments of teaching that use the platform Moodle, especially the blogs, in order to help the students to better plan and regulate their learning, integrating the use of these tools in methodologies based on the analysis of cases and problem situations.

To achieve this objective it is required to:

1. Revise experiences and works previous to the use of the blogs, and possibly of other CIT tools that are useful for teaching environments based on the Moodle (e.g.. “wikis”, “workshops” or “databases”).

2. Design activities and tasks that, through the use of the blogs and other CIT tools integrated in the Moodle (e.g.“wikis”, “workshops” or “databases”), help the students plan, supervise and evaluate their processes of individual and group work and study.

3. Integrate these activities and tasks in the common methodologies of analysis of cases in the courses of the project.

4. Complete the teaching of the courses according to the new instructional design.

5. Improve the perception of the students of the processes of planning and regulation of their own learning.
