Abstract—The paper moving from a pedagogical reflection on innovative methodology for the improvement of teaching in schools and universities, presents the model of Flipped Classroom activated during 2014-2015 at the University of Salento in the experimentation of the E-Learning in the University. The contribute describes the design and framework of the Tic & DIL project and the different levels of assessment focusing on the students perceptions. A subgroup of 175 students of the project was involved in this research. An opinion survey shows that the FC approach had a whole good impact on the students. They describe themselves as more motivated and independent in their learning process while, sometimes, it could produce a sense of loss and a relational distance between teacher and students.
