Deadline: on going
Open to: everyone but especially to non-ICT students and professionals, working and/or studying in Estonia
Venue: 9th of October – 10th of December 2017

Description

Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies (University of Tartu) is re-opening its free MOOC “Diffusion and Impact of Internet Voting” (2 ECTS), which will start on 9th of October and run until 10th of December.

In this course you will learn what are the main prerequisites for the evolution of e-government; how does a typical e-voter look like, how fast do people vote online and how is it related to their age. The course will also examine the concerns about political bias in e-voting, how costs are related to the decision to vote and whether vote verification has increased trust towards e-voting.

Eligibility

The course is open to everyone but especially to non-ICT students and professionals, working and/or studying in Estonia, who are interested in widening their knowledge about e-government in general, and internet voting, in particular.

Benefit

By enrolling to the course, you will have an access to the latest findings related to the main developments in the field of e-voting in Estonia. The course relies on the research findings published in the book “E-voting in Estonia: Technological Diffusion and Other Developments Over Ten Years” by our MOOC authors, Dr. Kristjan Vassil and Mihkel Solvak. The course and the book are unique in employing a wealth of empirical evidence – including 10 years of survey data on e-voting, actual log data on voting sessions and aggregate election data – to demonstrate the development and usage of internet voting.
