Learn how to equip yourself with capabilities in dealing with social innovations and the use of digital technologies to promote and enhance social-economic development.
I would like to receive emails from Virtual University of Uganda and keep up to date with new developments.
In today’s digital era, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is the key driver of almost everything. From education, to health, governance, business, tourism and all other sectors of any economy, ICT acts as a vehicle for change. ICTs can be applied in various ways to assist both governmental and non-governmental organizations to improve socio-economic conditions in developing countries.
ICT can provide a useful tool for sustainable development and an absolute need in emergency situations. However, there is a notable lack of capacity especially in developing countries to develop, maintain and utilize ICT resources. This could be one of the causes of failure of ICT projects.
