In this lecture the connections between the courses taught in the program of socioinformatics are clarified, for example:
- What are socio-technical systems and how can they be modeled?
- How do people behave online and offline?
- What legal questions can arise in socio-technical systems?
- What business models exist in web-based systems?
In the exercises, students work on socioinformatics topics in small groups and publish them using a wiki or blog.
