The aim of the course is to provide to the student the foundational knowledge and the practical skills concerning the area of social informatics. The course discusses both the so-called Social Media ( Facebook, Twitter, etc.)and the Crowdsourcing phenomenon. In the first case, social behavior is supported by computational systems; in the second case, computational systems are supported by social behavior. The course deals with conceptual topics, theoretical foundations, and practical applications.
