The course Web-Based Teamwork is transversal along the university and common to all degrees in Computer Science, Multimedia and Telecommunications faculty. Its main goal is introducing students in a gradual and integrated way into the acquisition of the UOC’ general competency ‘Use and application of ICT in the academic and professional spheres’. This competency comprises the rational and critical use of ICT to work and study in the knowledge society and goes further than the instrumental knowledge of tools. This competency should be  understood aligned with the European Union definition of digital competencies as a set knowledge, abilities, attitudes, strategies and awareness needed to use ICT and digital tools to perform tasks, solve problems, communicate, manage information, collaborate, create and share contents, build knowledge in a way which is effective, efficient, suitable, critical, creative, autonomous, flexible, ethic, and reflexive, for working, leisure, participation, learning, socialisation, consumption and empowerment.


The course has 6 ECTS credits and pertains to the block of basic courses of the Bachelor’s degree and it is based on the methodology of online project-based learning and uses the Agile methodology. Developing a team digital project based on a theme related to the Bachelor’s degree area, it is expected to work in an integrated way a set of specific ICT competencies to be deepened into other courses and consolidated in the final project of the Bachelor’s degree.


The course is projected in the professional fields which are characteristics of the Bachelor’s degree.


Basic ICT knowledge at a user level is recommended.


It is recommended to take the course Web-Based Teamwork during the first semester of the Bachelor’s degree. Because the contents are focused on competencies, it is necessary to be acquired as early as possible to facilitate the learning process along the others Bachelor’s degree courses.


The main objective of the course is providing students with a baseline of ICT knowledge and competencies at academic and professional level. The specific competencies are:

The more instrumental contents do not emphasize the knowledge of the tool, they are focused on the application in specific situations in the study scenario.


Reflexive contents:

·       Rational and critical use of ICT

·       ICT application in the study scenario

·       Social network

·       Digital attitude


Methodological contents:

·       Work planification in a virtual environment

·       Team digital project

The assessment process is based on students' own work and the assumption that this work is original and has been carried out by them.

In assessment activities, the following irregular behaviours, among others, may have serious academic and disciplinary consequences: someone else being involved in carrying out the student's assessment test or activity, or the work being not entirely original; copying another's work or committing plagiarism; attempting to cheat to obtain better academic results; collaborating in, covering up or encouraging copying; or using unauthorized material, software or devices during assessment.

If students are caught engaging in any of these irregular behaviours, they may receive a fail mark (D/0) for the assessable activities set out in the course plan (including the final tests) or in the final mark for the course. This could be because they have used unauthorized materials, software or devices (e.g. social networking sites or internet search engines) during the tests, because they have copied text fragments from an external source (internet, notes, books, articles, other student's projects or activities, etc.) without correctly citing the source, or because they have engaged in any other irregular conduct.

In accordance with the UOC's academic regulations , irregular conduct during assessment, besides leading to a failing mark for the course, may be grounds for disciplinary proceedings and, where appropriate, the corresponding punishment, as established in the UOC's coexistence regulations.

In its assessment process, the UOC reserves the right to:

  • Ask the student to provide proof of their identity, as established in the university's academic regulations.
  • Request that students provide evidence of the authorship of their work, throughout the assessment process, both in continuous and final assessment, by means of an oral test or by whatever other synchronous or asynchronous means the UOC specifies. These means will check students' knowledge and competencies to verify authorship of their work, and under no circumstances will they constitute a second assessment. If it is not possible to guarantee the student's authorship, they will receive a D grade in the case of continuous assessment or a Fail in the case of final assessment.

    For this purpose, the UOC may require that students use a microphone, webcam or other devices during the assessment process, in which case it will be the student's responsibility to check that such devices are working correctly.


You can only pass the course if you participate in and pass the continuous assessment. Your final mark for the course will be the mark you received in the continuous assessment.
