ResumenThis chapter deals with the competences that both faculty and students should acquire to carry out learning processes in online and face-to-face settings and take part in them. These competences have been obtained and described in a research and development project (EDU2009-12125), financed by the government of Spain, where the aim was to analyse the so-called digital natives' uses, preferences and attitudes regarding digital technologies in higher education (Prensky, 2001; Trinder, Guiller, Margaryan, Littlejohn, and Nicol, 2008).
