Abstract : Today, there is no doubt that the use of virtual platforms like Moodle have positioned themselves categorically in the daily routine of teaching learning, indeed, many courses (such as the object of the study conducted) have been applied 100% virtually within the curriculum, and after the classic resistance to change, it can be said that the acceptance of this platform is being achieved. The study is based on statistical indicators of homework submission and participation in discussions, as well as on surveys to the participating students about their perception of the Moodle Platform. The following research seeks to test the relationship between the use of the Moodle virtual platform and the performance of students in the Communication 2 course, highlighting collaborative learning, constructivism, and new proposals based on the implementation of ICT in educational processes. The objective of the research is to establish whether the use of the Moodle virtual platform is related to the academic performance of students in the Communication 2 course in the 2017-2 academic period at the Universidad Privada del Norte, Los Olivos campus. The population used was the students enrolled in 4 courses of Communication 2, which totaled 130 students and who took the same on a regular basis. The methodology used was that of a pure or basic research in a non-experimental cross-sectional design with a quantitative approach at a correlational level. It was concluded that students who actively participated in the discussions and made constant use of the Moodle platform, and also presented the tasks proposed in the modules achieved better performance in the Communication 2 course in the 2017-2 period at the Universidad Privada del Norte, Los Olivos campus.
