  • MOOCs for Development: Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities

    • Authors: Nathan M. Castillo, Jinsol Lee, Fatima T. Zahra, Daniel A. Wagner
      Abstract: The recent rise of massive open online courses (MOOCs) has generated significant media attention for their potential to disrupt the traditional modes of education through ease of access and free or low-cost content delivery. MOOCs offer the potential to enable access to high-quality education to students, even in the most underserved regions of the world. However, much of the excitement surrounding opportunities for MOOCs in non-OECD contexts remains unproven. Challenges with regard to infrastructure, sustainability, and evaluation have disrupted early attempts to expand inclusion for those least educated. Drawing on proceedings from a recent international conference on MOOCs for Development held at the University of Pennsylvania, this report synthesizes trends, challenges, and opportunities within the growing subfield.

  • Internet Use and the Building of Social Capital for Development: A Network
           Perspective

    • Authors: Rong Wang
      Abstract: Guided by the Capability Approach, this study highlights the importance of assessing development in terms of people’s engagement in activities they want to do. It moves beyond the emphasis on economic growth and access to new technologies. Situated in the context of Internet use, this study examines how civil society associations and existing bonding and bridging social ties are related to an individual’s capability to use the Internet for information seeking, economic transactions, political participation, learning, and entertainment. Drawing from the network perspective of social capital, this study proves the importance of social networks in affecting an individual’s capability of using the Internet for specific purposes. The article contributes to the growing literature on the links between ICTs and development. It also highlights the social factors of technology use, providing implications on how to promote Internet use in developing communities.

  • Internet Bandwidth Upgrade: Implications on Performance and Usage in Rural
           Zambia

    • Authors: Mariya Zheleva, Paul Schmitt, Morgan Vigil, Elizabeth Belding
      Abstract: Broadband Internet access has become a critical part of socioeconomic prosperity; however, only six in 100 inhabitants have access to broadband in developing countries. This limited access is driven predominately by subscriptions in urban areas. In rural developing communities, access is often provided through slow satellite or other low-bandwidth long-distance wireless links, if available at all. As a result, the quality of Internet access is often poor and, at times, unusable. In this article we study the performance and usage implications of an Internet access upgrade, from a 256 Kbps satellite link to a 2 Mbps terrestrial wireless link in rural Zambia. While usage did not immediately change, performance improved soon after the upgrade. By three months post-upgrade, subscribers began to use the faster connection for more bandwidth-hungry applications such as video streaming and content upload. This change in use resulted in a dramatic deterioration of network performance, whereby the average round-trip time doubled, the number of bytes associated with failed uploads increased by 222% and failed downloads by 91%. Due to this deteriorated performance, the use of more bandwidth-hungry applications as observed three months post-upgrade did not persist over the long term. As uploads became largely unsuccessful, users stopped initiating uploads and, instead, switched to using the increased capacity for heavier downloads. Thus, while an Internet access upgrade should translate to improved performance and user experience, in rural environments with limited access speed and growing demand, it can bring unexpected consequences.
