Online course developed by the CITIS team reaches a global audience of 2000+ learners on Udemy platform

Introduction to Internet Voting, Photo: screenshot, 2019

In 2017, the CITIS team launched the mini-version of its popular English-based MOOC “Diffusion and Impact of Internet Voting” on the international online learning platform - Udemy. The short version of the course, titled “Introduction to Internet Voting”, is available on open-demand and by November of 2019 reached an audience of 2078 students, from 110 countries around the world, speaking 32 languages.

The mini-version of the course is aimed at introducing students to basic concepts of internet voting and covers such topics as e-voting prerequisites, profile of e-voters, impact of e-voting on turnout and costs of implementation. The course is taught by the Senior Research Fellows in Technology Studies - Dr. Mihkel Solvak and Dr. Kristjan Vassil. According to Anna Beitane, who is supporting the teaching staff with the course implementation and is the Manager of Online Learning Projects at J. Skytte Institute, “both courses received very positive reviews from learners throughout the years. In 2017, “Diffusion and Impact of Internet Voting” received the e-course quality mark given by the Information Technology Foundation for Education (HITSA in Estonian), which serves as a good quality reassurance of both content and instructional design of our course.”

The online courses have been created with the support of the European Social Fund programme "Increasing Digital Literacy" and Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communication. They are also complemented by the on-campus, regular course “SHRG.02.025 Measuring the Impact of e-Government: Economic, Political and Social Outcomes”. The latter course will be taught in the spring semester of 2020 and by design, this is an empirical, problem-based class where students will acquire specific skills that are essential to understanding the underlying concepts of impact evaluation: participants will acquire knowledge on theories of technological diffusion and adoption; learn how to request and work with data automatically generated by the Estonian e-governance system, and learn to apply analytical techniques on actual data provided by the state institutions.

Everyone who is interested, can enroll to a Udemy course “Introduction to Internet Voting via this link, and register for a regular course “SHRG.02.025 Measuring the Impact of e-Government: Economic, Political and Social Outcomes”, starting from December 15 through  the Study Information System.
