Abstract—In the last century the pedagogical and psycho-
educational changes, advances and studies were the major figures in
the educational programmes and in the way of teaching. In the
century XXI, although these items continue with a great prominence,
new tools have emerging which are very useful for teachers by
means of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
Moreover, in Europe an small revolution in the educational system is
happening: the Bologna process. From our research group we are
developing and using different tools to obtain and to facilitate this
change of attitude: we have created some new and interactive
material, similar to videos, we use the Moodle platform, we have
created test for an auto-evaluation by students, etc. These new tools
are implemented on the one hand in our subjects of the Engineering
School of Bilbao and on the other hand in the subjects of the Spanish
Group 9 of Universities by means of its Virtual Campus.

students are worse it is because and only because the level of
students in their previous studies has decreased.

the opinion of the majority of the teaching community is like
our , , , . That is, in some countries, doubt to some
