This study attempts to extract the characteristics, computer literacy, critical acceptance, and creative ability for digital information, included in H University's computer application course and then verify the effect of these characteristics on confidence (self-efficacy) that they can be solved when faced with a new problem. In addition, the purpose of this study was to compare and analyze how these characteristics affect self-efficacy according to the change of circumstances from the beginning of the semester to the end of the semester.
As a result of the analysis, it was found that creativity improves self-efficacy at the beginning of the semester, but creativity decreases self-efficacy in the moderating effect on situations. It can be said that the creativity is already equipped with the development of one-person media and SNS. Therefore, they have creativities at the beginning of the semester and improve their self-efficacy, but since they are not yet familiar with classes and have insufficient adaptation to the university such as Covid 19, it was found that the moderating effect of the situation on these creativities rather lowers the self-efficacy. At the end of the semester, it was found that critical accommodating ability and computer literacy improved self-efficacy by improving computer literacy while solving problems close to real life and performing tasks, has been shown to improve. This is because the computer utilization class mainly focuses on improving the critical acceptance ability and problem solving ability of digital information, can do. In this subjects, since the focus is on improving the critical acceptance and problem-solving ability of digital information, it can be said that the moderating effect of these factors as well as the utilization and critical acceptance ability improves self-efficacy at the same time.
It is meaningful that this study actually verified the improvement of digital literacy ability among college students that use digital information the most. A school in charge of nurturing future talents with these abilities can serve as an institution that nurtures the skills required by society, and society has the effect of reducing the cost of re-educating people who do not have these skills.
