Abstract [en]

This paper explores how online learning technology can be used to support research networks that include both developed and developing countries in the area of ICT for development (ICT4D). The paper reports a case study of a postgraduate network on ICT4D. The data collection was performed by interviews, document analysis and a web survey distributed to 456 members. It is argued that online learning technology has the potential to support more equal participation, as compared with face-to-face activities. Content delivery, such as e-newsletters, online repositories and recorded events are useful, but promote social relations to a limited extent. Suggestions on appropriate online social activities include arranging virtual conferences, taking advantage of social media and further development of a collaborative wiki. During the roundtable we will discuss how online learning technology can be used to sustain research networks in the area of ICT4D.
