Abstract As higher education opens up to a wider population, we witness more incoming students that lack necessary skills for using information and communication tools effectively. We suggest various ways to define, assess, and develop such skills. In this study, we concentrate on another facet; we examined students' retrospective subjective perceptions regarding various effects of an ICT-literacy course. Analysis of the research data revealed that the students believe the ICT-literacy course raised their self-confidence in their ability to cope with further learning. We also present comparative results with relation to age and gender for examining effects of the ICT literacy course.
