ICEGEG Antalya10 Training/Education for all In addition to introducing basic computer literacy, concepts and applications of EGovernment should be introduced at the very early stages of education. A study conducted in Finland analyzes the status and challenges of eGovernment childhood education . The analysis indicated that, there is significant development work in progress in the field of early childhood education. EGovernment Concepts EServices for the Children Online application forms Online Passport Inquiry Applying for Driving License Obtaining legal documents for various transactions Online banking Issues on IT security Ethical issues Mobile Applications
ICEGEG Antalya11 Issues on Curriculum Development Public Administration and Policy IT Management Organizational Information Systems Distributed systems and service interoperability Information Privacy and Security EGovernment Concepts Data Management for e-Government Process Management for e-Government Lifecycle management of e-Government applications Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Business Process Management (BPM) EGovernance Legal Issues and Laws
ICEGEG Antalya12 Issues on Curriculum Development A model curriculum proposed CEO-Module 1: E-Government Concepts CEO-Module 2: Technology Components CEO-Module 3: Project Management Skills CEO-Module 4: Business Care Metrics CEO-Module 5: Organizational Transformation CEO-Module 6: Digital Civic Engagement This approach claims to support holistic training and can be easily adopted by many institutions. A drawback of the model is the fact that, it requires certain level of learner maturity and seems to be suitable for only CEO’s and CIO’s.
ICEGEG Antalya13 A proposal To alleviate the problem above, a more generic model is proposed especially geared towards IT professionals (ITP). The implementation of such a curriculum can be at the certificate level or can be in the form of a degree program (MS or Ph.D level). ITP-Module 1: EGovernment Concepts ITP-Module 2: EGovernment Performance Measures ITP-Module 3: Technology behind eGovernment (SOA and BPM) ITP-Module 4: EGovernment Project Management ITP-Module 5: ETransformation/EGovernance ITP-Module 6: Information Privacy and Security ITP-Module 7: Legal Issues and Law ITP-Module 8: Project or Thesis (for degree programs)
