ABSTRACT Este artículo es un extracto de un estudio más amplio donde pretendíamos extraer líneas formativas para los docentes de e-learning. Desarrollado en el curso académico 2006/07 tratamos de descubrir cuáles son las funciones propias del docente de e-formación. Partiendo de una metodología de corte cualitativo, triangulamos fuentes y técnicas mediante entrevistas, grupos de discusión y cuestionarios a alumnos, profesores y expertos internacionales en e-learning. Finalmente, concluimos que las funciones principales de los e-docentes son fundamentalmente de carácter docente, de orientación y técnicas.

    ABSTRACT: In today's globalized environment, universities and business schools need to incorporate elements and tools to obtain high-performance capabilities. Curricular schooling can benefit from the usage of educational business games. We analyzed the evolution and performance of two group of students who have followed a business simulation during some academic semesters. Data from a questionnaire answered by 146 students were analysed and compared with the European Tuning Project competence ranking. The results showed that the level of generic and specific competences obtained using business games is quite high. Moreover, the study have found that the assessment of competences acquired by students with a business game is not the same in the case of on-campus students than in the case of online students, in most cases the online group values specific competences higher than the face-to-face group. Our results suggest that the use of business games and can be considered a useful tool to improve student's achievements and to foster a good level of competences.

    ABSTRACT: This study analyses the role of the instructor in the e-learning process fostered by a business game. To achieve this objective, a comparative analysis was conducted with two groups of students regarding their perceptions of the instructor's role in a business game. The first group was composed of 33 participants and facilitated by an instructor in a face-to-face process. The second group was composed of 23 participants and facilitated by the same instructor online. Our results indicate that the students' assessment of the role of the instructor is clearly different in both cases: the face-to-face group valued the relevance of the instructor's role in the learning process more highly than the online group. Our findings also highlight the importance of the instructor's role in improving the students' learning experience and suggest that extra efforts by online instructors are needed to maximize the e-learning process through business games in management training.
