This article asks the question, "How can ethical competence and civic engagement be formed through a virtual learning environment?" The answer is offered in the form of a service learning function "based on virtual exchange involving, primarily, Spanish students from UNED’s Faculty of Education enrolled in fourth-year Social Education Degree and African students from the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) of Porto Novo (Benin) who were enrolled in second- and third-year teacher-training courses for Spanish-language teachers."
