Diffusion and Impact of Internet Voting (UT)
The MOOC is comprised of weekly video lectures, which are divided into eight issue specific modules, introducing such topics as the theory and foundational pre-requisites of e-government in Estonia; diffusion and usage of electronic voting; impact on voter turnout and electronic results as well as behavioural aspects and the future of internet voting.

In this course you will learn, what is the institutional and technical set-up behind internet voting, how does a typical e-voter look like, how fast do people actually vote online and how is it related to their age. The course will also examine how exactly are costs related to the decision to vote and whether vote verification has increased trust towards e-voting.

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.




Upon completing the course, the student will:

● have an overview of the nature and development of Estonian e-governance;

● be able to analyze and relate issues of Estonian e-governance to her/his field of specialization;

● be able to evaluate the potential of technology to diffuse as well as its societal impact;

● be able to create indicators and use these to evaluate the spread and impact of selected e-services;

● can interpret findings and make these understandable in non-technical language for a wider audience as well as make practical suggestion to IT-developers and policy makers.
