English abstract

The UC3M library has been in Second Life since January, 2008. Since that time, it has created spaces which have not been used as much as we would like but which are very useful for virtual learning, and educational activities and information technology activities have taken place. Their usefulness could be improved if tools such as Sloodle were used, which would connect Aula Global (Moodle) platform with the campus and it could be applied to the blended learning degree programs.
