Abstract: Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, Ecuadorian university institutions have started a new academic period in the virtual modality. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of ICT in the virtual teaching of students of the Salesian Polytechnic University as a challenge due to the pandemic. A structured questionnaire with a Likert scale was used, applied to 5432 students. The questionnaire yielded high-reliability coefficients in the pilot test and the real stage of the study, α = 0.95 and α = 0.98 respectively. The results indicate that ICT has allowed students to carry out tasks, evaluations, and receive feedback from their teachers. However, the effectiveness of the virtual environment compared to the traditional environment is discussed. In conclusion, ICT applied in virtual education allows students to develop a rhythm of self-taught learning strategies, whose knowledge can be applied to solving tasks and evaluations.
