Abstract: Se realiz贸 una investigaci贸n descriptiva con el objetivo de evaluar la calidad de un curso virtual de formaci贸n docente, usando el Modelo de Evaluaci贸n de Cursos Virtuales de Formaci贸n Continua del Instituto Latinoamericano de Calidad en Educaci贸n a Distancia (CALED). Mediante la aplicaci贸n de una lista de verificaci贸n y cuatro cuestionarios, se analizaron 72 indicadores de las 谩reas: calidad tecnol贸gica, formaci贸n, dise帽o instruccional y servicios y soporte. Los resultados indican cumplimiento parcial de los est谩ndares de calidad. Las 谩reas de mayor cumplimiento en orden decreciente fueron: formaci贸n, dise帽o instruccional y servicios y soporte. En el 谩rea de calidad tecnol贸gica se cumple con la mayor铆a de los requerimientos y en algunos casos no se encontraron registros requeridos como evidencias de la evaluaci贸n.聽QUALITY OF AN E-LEARNING VIRTUAL COURSE IN HEALTH SCIENCES聽AbstractA descriptive study was conducted in order to evaluate the quality of a virtual course on teacher training, using the Evaluation Model of the Virtual Continuous Training Courses of the Latin American Institute for Quality in Distance Education (CALED, in Spanish). By applying a checklist and four questionnaires, there were analyzed 72 indicators for the following areas: Technological quality, training, instructional design and services and support. The results indicate a partial accomplishment of the quality standards. The areas of greatest fulfillment in descending order were training, instructional design and services and support.
