Abstract

In 2006, all 9000 students at the University Passau (Germany) were invited to take part at an online questionnaire. A participation of over 6% were collected. About 84% of all the students polled have access to the Internet in their apartments or apartment-share communities. About 93% of male students rated their media literacy as high or fairly high, but only 77% of female students did so (r = +- .215). Most students (96%) feel themselves able to handle standard-applications, 42% of all students state that their competences related to production of own media is high (13%) or fairly high (29%). 65% of male students rate their competences in this section as high or fairly high but only 25% of female students do so. While 84% of students training for primary school education think that the success of eLearning is not guaranteed, only 56% of the whole sample, agree to that. Also the preferences with form of eLearning show low correlations with gender but higher with media literacy.
