Course Content

This MOOC is intended to introduce first-year students to the digital competence model for Austria (DigComp 2.2) and to present it in an understandable and clear way. The content is strictly based on the framework defined by the European Union and is divided into the following modules:
  • Competence area 1: Dealing with information and data
  • Competence area 2: Communication and collaboration
  • Competence area 3: Digital content creation
  • Competency area 4: Security
  • Competence area 5: Problem solving and learning

Each module is further subdivided into sub-areas.

Course Goals

After completing this MOOC, participants will...
  • know the defined digital competences and
  • be able to integrate them into their daily study routine.

Previous Knowledge

There are no specific prerequisites.

Course Procedure

The MOOC consists of six units, which are unlocked weekly.

In the first units, participants are introduced to the topic and the course of the MOOC. In the five following units, the five competence areas of the European framework DigComp 2.2 are covered.

Each competence area consists of several videos that present the topics in the form of informal dialogues. These are followed by further links to explore the topics in more depth. At the end of each competence area there is a quiz to complete for self-assessment.


For active participation in the course, an automated confirmation of participation is issued upon completion, which includes your user name, the course name, the course duration and the effort involved. Please note that this is only a confirmation that the user has answered at least 75% of the self-assessment questions correctly.
