The present study determined the level of knowledge and use of the different Web 2.0 tools, in order to enhance the application of these in the learning process for candidate officers of the Ecuadorian Navy. The information was obtained through an online survey where Web 2.0 questions were addressed to a sample of 128 candidates from first to fourth year. The analysis of this result shows the acceptance of these tools by students, highlighting the convenience of generating academic activities through the use of web 2.0 tools and improving collaborative and autonomous performance and learning capacity.
