This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Digital Governance confronts the students with the variety of challenges that digitalization creates for society (e.g., Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Social Media). The course discusses how established concepts as competition, property, privacy, democracy may have to adapt to the disruptions created by digitalization. To this end the course bundles the expertise of the scholars of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence on Digital Governance and provides lectures, interviews, studio discussions, assignments and peer reviews for an entertaining and didactically cut-edge journey through the new world of digital governance. The course can be attended by all interested people which register at Coursera, with or without the intention to get a certificate for their successful attendance. For regular students of the Erasmus University Rotterdam (NL), Bar-Ilan University (ISR) and the University of Leeds (UK) specific rules apply for the grading and the integration of the MOOC into their curriculum (interested students shall get in contact with the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence or the study administrations at their universities).
