In recent years the development of the Technologies of the Information and Communication have offered a range of tools with high potential to contribute to the educational labor. Beyond the possibilities of taking courses and undergraduate and post-grad degrees at distance, the traditional education, typically face-to-face, has also been modified by it.

Therefore, this work has as overall goal achieve an approximation to the perception of the students of the UNLP on the use of the Virtual Environments of Education and Learning, as contribution to the educational quality.

The general frame of the present work is the project "The quality of the higher education. A study on the perception of the Students", which is accredited in the Program of Incentives stimulated by the Department of Education, Science and Technology of the Nation.

The methodology used corresponds to that applied in the mentioned project being the information presented here part of the surveyed. This methodology is descriptive in nature, being a non-experimental research with a transverse design in which basic information sources used are of primary type, obtained by means of self-administered questionnaires.

The information presented here allows us to suggest the need to develop more research that address issues such as opinions and actions of teachers and students to realize which is the contribution of the Technologies of the Information and Communication to the educational quality and what is the role that the teachers fulfill in this process.
