Miscellanea Upon the successful completion of this module, students understand the implications of the internet for government and society. They are able to discuss the purposeful use of information and communication technology to reinvent the relationship between government and society by making governments more responsive, accessible, transparent, responsible, participatory, efficient, and effective than before. Students are aware of the technical, organizational, legal, and societal challenges of moving public services online and can describe possible strategies and countermeasures. They are also able to discuss the concept and opportunities of digital democracy and are aware of current issues such as digital participation and open data. Finally, students develop group work and presentation skills by addressing a specific problem in Digital Government Management in a group case study.
