Sorry for the confusion. The group work – both presentation and participation – will NOT contribute to your final grade, but will help prepare you for answering your final exam. Your grade will be based on your exam alone.
The INF5850 exam will be made available to students on Nov 29, 2019. These will have to be completed and submitted by Dec 13, 2019. The exam must be submitted using Inspera.
The exam from last year is available here.
Through group work, we will try to identify and discuss practical applications of ICTs for improving development outcomes. These could be related to sectors of health, climate, education, peace, or other relevant areas. In the group, you will identify from the popular press (internet, blogs, newspapers etc.) an article which discusses how ICTs have been applied to a development domain, what have been the outcomes, and has the technology contributed to “building a better world in which we live?” Your analysis should try to be critical where you challenge the conclusions presented and be bold enough to provide your own alternative explanations.
