Paper Abstract

The Galician Universitary System (SUG) in the framework of the European studies under the Bologna process presents a huge number of Masters courses. In this work we present the teaching framework of the Science Masters on “Photonics and Laser Technologies”, coordinated by the University of Vigo (UVigo) and involving the three Universities of Galicia: University of Vigo (UVigo), University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) and University of Coruña (UdC). The aim of this work is to show how teaching at this Masters is carried out using an online platform so that the whole expertise of all the three Universities can be properly exploited and the geographic dispersion of lecturers and students overcame. The used platform permits the students to attend the lessons from their own Universities without wasting time and money on traveling. Besides, each lecturer can teach from his/her own University, allowing the combination of this activity with other professional and scientific duties. Thanks to this tool, the Masters could host students that followed the lessons from other different countries. The platform has been used for lectures, seminar classes, examinations, conferences and coordination activities between teachers and students.
