Introduction
Teaching and learning methodologies in the twenty-first century have changed in such a way that many authors consider that they represent a new form of accessing knowledge and, in consequence, revolutionize learning. At present, both regulated (presential, semi-presential and online teaching) and nonregulated (massive open online courses) educational activities are offered either totally or partially through interactive platforms known as learning management systems (LMS), for example, Moodle (Allen and Taylor, 2017). This reality has implied a change in the form of transferring and processing information. Because of the educational characteristics of higher education, where applicable, LMS gains greater relevance and implies modifications in the teaching and the learning styles of both te
