WGV - Web-Enabled Government: Facilitating Collaboration and Transparency

This course explores the capabilities, selection, and application of new and emerging web technologies to enable more creative, collaborative, and transparent government. The course examines and assesses the use of current and  emerging web technologies and best practices of significant government interest, e.g., cloud computing, social media and networking, geographic information services technology, and security. Students consider web technology evaluation criteria, methodologies, and risks to enable them to adapt the evaluation criteria and apply selected web technologies within and/or across government.
