Our notions of time and location are changing – the world seems to have become a ‘global village’ where distance is no longer a barrier to commercial or social contact. If we live in Britain or other parts of the westernised world, it’s difficult to imagine being without all the networked infrastructure that plays a crucial part in our daily lives. This free course, ICTs in everyday life, is about how this infrastructure of information and communication technologies (ICTs) permeates our lives.
