The purpose of this article is to analyse the social and economic characteristics of young academics in relation to internet access and the skills they have in the use of technological resources in the context of developing virtual distance courses. The interest emerged from the current discourse and contradictory facts. On the one hand, it seems that young people — native digital — have no difficulties compared with those courses. On the other hand, the increase in university enrolment hides inequalities between students, visible by the closure of face-to-face courses. The article is based on a survey applied to students of sociology from San Francisco Xavier University (USFX) in Chuquisaca, Bolivia.
