The research group E-Virtual from the Universidad de Medellin has been working on the implementation of bimodal courses since six years ago. In 2009, with the support of the Ministery of National Education (MEN), it was implemented the non-face-toface class modality with a virtual methodology in the pedagogic framework of the University. This new activities took the group to think about the didactic and pedagogic characteristics that should be considered when face-to-face and virtual education are combined. To achieve this, we asked lectures and students about the perception of this new methodology. The data was collected by combining qualitative and quantitative methods. As a result, we obtained an introductory process, communicative interactions, virtual learning objects, and clues about the use of the platform. In this paper we provide the preliminary results of our study, emphasizing on the positive aspects, and the aspects to improve.

Keywords : bimodal; education; didactic model; pedagogic model; E-learning.
