INF 430 - Information Divides

3 hours
The rise of the information society has brought with it great advances in knowledge creation and dissemination by employing a wide range of information and communication technologies. This has enhanced knowledge, wealth, power, and comfort–but not for all. Digital divides have emerged, especially among underrepresented groups and those without access to online information. This course addresses different types of digital divides and their defining characteristics, especially with regard to economics, education, health, and democracy. Learning experiences in this course will employ literature-based discussion and research-based investigations into specific digital divide issues.

Prerequisite(s): INF 110  and INF 120
