Technical, economic and societal evaluation of IT-products (TDDC34)

HT 2014


The general aim of this course is to provide a holistic perspective on models and methods to analyse and evaluate new technology (IT-based products or/and services) and its alternatives as well as its socio-economic-technical effects;

  • Comprehend the various evaluation methods and models discussed in the course, as well as their scientific base
  • Apply the methods in a project
  • Reflect on evaluation from technical, economic and societal perspectives

Economic evaluation could be from a supplier or user perspective. However, technical evaluation in this course focuses on the user perspective.

Regarding the economic, and technical evaluation, we focus on the organisational perspective rather than the individual or consumer. Organisations of interest do not need to be legal entities,  also loosely coupled networks that have a common goal (e.g. a sports club, online communities, ...) can be a typical setting to investigate.

However, effects of IT use are not restricted to an organisation. Thus we also study the societal level.

In the course, we will pay equal attention (and grade you accordingly) to theoretical awareness and your ability to apply your conceptual knowledge on an IT-solution of your choice.

Make sure to check all requirements to be able to pass.
