    The educational package was designed for both, to promote signicant learning on some thermodynamic topics in undergraduate students, and to help the student to reach the cognitive competencies of interpreting, arguing and proposing, and interacting with the different graphical user interfaces to solve relevant cases studies.Also, the teachinglearning activity helps them to understand the inuence of a specic variable on the energy and entropy behavior of the selected systems, which is traditionally studied manually in a classroom.People with that training have excellent troubleshooting skills that help them to solve many problems in a highly effective way.To acquire this skill, it is necessary to have exceptional preparation in their thermodynamics courses, as well as in the engineering laboratory practices because it provides students real manipulation of instruments and devices, allowing them to have both experiences, theory, and practice.Although laboratories are one of the best ways of teaching, they have some disadvantages, such as the cost of their creation as well as their maintenance. Due to technological advancement, the use of computational tools for simulation of industrial processes is an exciting alternative to complement the theoretical classes in a classroom.It has been found that the implementation of process simulations increases the interest of students and their motivation. The teaching of thermodynamics has made signicant progress moving from the traditional theoretical method to the use of computer technology, allowing the student to have higher participation in the development of classes, determined that students trained through interactive teaching obtained signicantly higher performance than through the traditional training method.This trend is driven by the growing interest of students in elearning systems, which are webbased learning systems, computers, and everything related to virtual learning that includes technologies and information systems either online or ofine. The implementation of this type of knowledge provides many benets to students promoting better education. This is an open access article under the CC BYNCND license e measuring its quality level, because there is no reference base to evaluate electronic learning systems. There are two essential aspects when evaluating the quality of elearning systems; these are the pedagogical and the technical issues, which are related to measuring the level of quality of this type of elearning systems. Besides, the opinion of the institutions, teachers, students, and software designers did a survey to determine the primary indicator that measures the quality of elearning systems considering the two main perspectives, pedagogical and technical.He used different criteria such as the learning environment, efciency, performance, reliability, functionality, usability, interaction, services, customization, learning activities, access, cost, technology, content, among others found that content was the crucial quality factor for elearning systems and that the main disadvantage when analyzing quality models was the absence of model validation.He determined that the students that use the software with higher frequency during the semester obtained better results in the nal exam.It is related to the signicant number of variables used when studying or simulating a chemical or mechanical process, which affects the student motivation to obtain the specic competences of the class.
