Abstract

ABSTRACT

The digital development of this century is transforming our society and, in parallel, the knowledge society. These new transmission platforms represent a different way of understanding the process of transmitting and receiving knowledge. The Wiki space is increasingly established in virtual higher education classrooms. The objective of this work was to implement the use of the Wiki space in the conventional teaching methodology of university studies and assess the degree of satisfaction of the student and its adequacy in the teaching process. A survey of 22 items was carried out to assess the opinion of 174 students regarding the use and capabilities of the Wiki tool.  Our results show that 98.2% rated the use of Wiki space positively. 83.3% of the students were able to promote self-learning, and 73.0% considered this a helpful resource to promote the teaching-learning process.  65.2% considered that the use of ICTs in higher education should be increased. In conclusion, the use of Wiki in the higher education teaching classroom has gained significant acceptance by students who consider it an innovative experience that favors learning and the critical search for information, increasing the motivation for the subject.
