This article discusses a frame of reference for the conceptualization and evaluation of e-learning models in higher education. The "face-to-face" and "distance" modalities have historically been conceived as the educational models par excellence and conceptualized as mutually opposed. However, e-learning technologies enable new educational models that combine presence and distance in different ways. Based on the experience of the ORT Uruguay University, we propose a continuum along which educational models appear in which e-learning and the face-to-face classroom complement each other to achieve different objectives. The pedagogical, technological and economic dimensions of these models are addressed in this article.
