Résumé : In distance education, the use of virtual classes is increasing. However, research has shown contrasted results in terms of learning. In this paper, we mainly focus on measuring the effect of virtual classes on teacher’ practices. Comparing the same course provided by the same teacher when physically present or at distance, we show that the virtual class is more structured and that the teacher follows more closely the scenario he has set for the virtual class. We rely on the results of research to assert that the virtual classroom is an effective tool for delivering content to less self-directed students.
