VALENCIA VALLEJO, Nilson G; HUERTAS BUSTOS, Adriana P  and  BARACALDO RAMIREZ, Pedro O. Virtual learning environments: review of publications between 2003-2013 from the evidence-based pedagogy perspective. Rev. colomb. educ. [online]. 2014, n.66, pp.73-103. ISSN 0120-3916.

A set of researches focused on Virtual Learning Environments and their impact on education, published between 2003-2013, was analyzed From an Evidence-Based Pedagogy perspective. To fulfil this purpose we used a regional database. Based on the information collected, a bibliometric study and a qualitative content analysis were done by means of a specialized software. From ninety one (91) papers, only three (3) of them fulfilled the Evidence-Based Pedagogy criteria. It was also found that researches in this field of knowledge require more rigorous scientific methodologies and the use of validated instruments in order to demonstrate efficiency and efficacy.

Keywords : Virtual learning environments; bibliometric study; evidencebased in education; qualitative content analysis; information and comunication technologies.
