Abstract (in English): 

The introduction of digital technologies in the learning processes has meant the creation of new educational spaces that, when they take place in Internet and are founded in non- presenciality and asynchrony, are known as VLE (Virtual Learning Environments). VLE constitute new pedagogic realities that must answer to the users’ needs, their educational purposes, the curricula with which they work and, specifically, the formative needs for the people that integrate them. But the key to define “virtual” in terms of human experience and not in terms of technological hardware is the concept of “presence” (Varis, 2000), which is crucial in our pedagogical model and our way of being comparative literature lecturers in a virtual university.
