Abstract: A final degree dissertation is one of the last steps of many studies, like engineering degrees. Students usually present the results of their final project in a public dissertation where a committee evaluates their work. Students, in this activity, deal with competences like making effective oral presentations in public environments in an stressful situation. But, can one achieve this goal in a virtual environment? At Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), a 100% virtual university, a solution is proposed based on video presentations that are uploaded in a tool, Present@, that allows them to share the presentations with their partners and with the committee and allows for questions and answers in an open environment. Present@ offers a improved tool to upload videos, that simplifies the process and makes it more suitable for students from any area of knowledge. But working with videos goes an step further and needs also the technological background to support this kind of files. Thus, at UOC an stream service, Kaltura, has been added to Present@ to offer an appropriate service. With this service students can upload easily nearly any video format and can even make comments in video. 131 students have been using Present@ during 4 semesters. To evaluate the tool, students have answered a questionnaire and from the answers received we conclude that this approach allows virtual students to acquire most of the competences associated with the final degree project and, specifically, with the virtual dissertation in virtual environments. Maybe the only feature they do not face, is the stress of the face to face questions. It is important to note that, thanks to the improvements introduced, Present@ is now in more than 100 classrooms at UOC and is used not only for TFC, but also to give subjects and to help students.
