This paper shows an alternative vision of teaching evaluation in Learning Management System (LMS) through the analysis of the tool events generated by lecturers. To perform this study, the events recorded in the LMS Sakai are extracted, analyzed and compared with results from students' evaluations of lecturers. The most important dimensions of the teaching process (planning, methodology, resources and monitoring) are thus evaluated in this work. Some remarkable results have been obtained in the study, highlighting two main findings: On the one hand, the use of specific tools may improve student monitoring, and on the other hand, a greater number of resources and personalized supervision does not imply a better student's perception of the applied teaching methodology.
