In today's world both the Internet and ICT play a crucial role in all aspects of society.
With the development of social networks, the way of communicating has changed,
and this does not exclude educational environments. In the framework of e-learning,
educational social networks have emerged as a tool that allows overcoming spatial
and temporal barriers. A knowledge management model was applied to students in
the programming area of three private universities in Bogota, Colombia, taking a
sample of 76 students, from which an experimental group and a control group were
taken, quantitative evaluations were made of aspects such as student participation
and academic performance, in addition to a qualitative assessment of the model that
was applied to students and teachers of the experimental group. It is observed that the
model improves both group and individual participation, as well as academic
performance, facilitating also the execution of the program in the established time
and making communication between students and teachers more fluid. The
conclusions allow to know that the model is superior to the traditional model and
widely accepted by both students and teachers.
