The roles and history of information and communication technologies in environment and social development are explained. Basic protocols for Internet (Ethernet and TCP/IP) and its related protocols (SMPT, FTP, and HTTP) are then explained. Internet services and their basic technologies, and the technologies which support web-based approaches are outlined. Finally, as an example of these technologies applied to development, we focus on e-learning.
By the end of this course, students will be able to explain the basics of information and communication technologies and learn more advanced information and communication technology.
