is there a way to type characters with umlauts or accents quickly, without clicking the relevant button with the mouse? I find it quite tiring having to use the mouse every time I have to use one of these characters.

DuoLingo accepts these 'international' German substitutions:

ä = ae ö = oe ü = ue

Also, ß = ss; however duoLingo does NOT accept this substitution

It depends on your keyboard layout and your operating system. Google for "<your language> <your OS> umlauts" and you'll eventually find out.
