This article provides an overview of the SECTIONS model as outlined in Tony Bates's Teaching in a Digital Age and then describes its application in an e-Education Program at Danube University Krems. Here it wasn't used as a decision model for administrators but rather to define an assignment structure for students. It was then applied in the same way at Torbat Heydariyeh University in Iran and helped introduce instructors to digital technologies in preparation for national MOOCs to be offered by the Virtual University of Medical Sciences on the ARMAN (a Farsi abbreviation for New and Massive National Computerized Education) MOOC platform.
