English Abstract

In the article, my experience dealing with online courses on criminological topics carried out in the undergraduate course for "Security and Social control Operators" (University of Bologna, Italy) is illustrated. Through the distribution of an evaluation questionnaire to the participants of the course, I have had the possibility of pointing out the positive and negative aspects of the organised didactic activity and I was able to collect valuable information with the aim of reflecting on the limits and potential of online learning methodology.
