Abstract

The pandemic because of Covid-19 brought with it the need to analyze educational practices in order to carry out transformation processes, which allow us to understand how to face the new educational scenarios. The objective of this research is to analyze the key factors that allow achieving significant learning in the e-learning modality. The study was conducted with 219 male high school students in the Arequipa region of Peru. The educational problem in different contexts because of the pandemic, is going through a series of adaptation, and evaluation processes, to minimize the negative impacts on learning achievements. For these reasons, it is important to analyze the factors that are involved in the current educational model, in such a way that new methodologies and strategies can be implemented that allow the provision of a comprehensive and quality education. The results of the study will allow to maintain a policy of constant evaluation of educational practices in the e-learning modality to determine the factors that favor connectivist education and specify the factors that are weakening the success of the system; this continuous evaluative exercise will make it possible to propose and determine practices and methodologies in order to maximize learning levels.
