The degree of satisfaction by the students is also analyzed through a satisfaction questionnaire. A total of 223 students voluntarily participated in the virtual course and completed the questionnaire. This information allowed determining the perception of the students about the virtual environment. The students had a positive acceptance and appreciation for the virtual course as an important complement to the face-to-face class.
