There are still considerable variability in survival rates regarding Cardiopulmonary Arrest (CA) that cannot be attributed exclusively to the patient characteristics. The lack of knowledge about the theme by professionals and academics is a graduation consequence. This way, graduating professionals able to operate front CA situations is believed to be a primordial attitude to increase patients' survival chances. To do so, there are digital strategies that can be used, one of them is the Virtual Learning Environment. Thus, this paper's objective is to develop a virtual interactive educational proposal about cardiopulmonary resuscitation care on adults. This is an applied research, which led to the development of a technological product – the elaboration of an educational proposal applied to Virtual Learning Environment. Then, it took place the cyclic phases of conception and planning, development and implementation, according to procedures and evidence reported on previous studies. The Virtual Learning Environment was called “Training in Basic Life Support (BLS)”, and has seven modules: “Historical Aspects”, “Basic Life Support”, “Epidemiology”, “Concepts”, “Anatomy and Physiology”, “Algorithms”, “Simulation and Questions”. The illustrations, formatting and layout were built by integrating both language programming technologies: PHP and JavaScript. The results of the evaluation, made by the academics, about the VLE usage pointed that opportunities to self-learning were created and the available resources in the environment were useful to support learning. It's necessary to comprehend and incorporate the Virtual Learning Environment as an efficient educational tool, and get aware of this knowledge as a strategy to add up new experiences and values to teachers' practice.
