My Digital Life

Ten years ago there was no Facebook or Twitter. Fifteen years ago broadband access to the internet in your home was an unimaginable luxury. Just twenty years ago you still had to buy your books, music and feature films from a high street shop. The digital revolution might still be young, but it has arguably brought about the biggest change in our lifestyles in the last two hundred years.

Where did it all begin? How does it work? Where is it going? These are just some of the questions you could ask.

Consider the following:
  • the ownership of data
  • how the World Wide Web works
  • the privacy and security of personal data
  • online identity in virtual worlds
  • how online businesses survive (or not)
  • and many more aspects of living in the digital world of today
An extract from the OU course 'My Digital Life' that may pose some useful questions.
