Introduction In this seminar, students will design a digital environment to house and facilitate participatory democracy. To ground the design, Massachusetts’s local form of government, known as “Open Town Meeting” (OTM), will be modeled as an example. OTM requires all interested townspeople to get together once a year and determine basic issues like the tax rate, zoning/development questions or allowing sex education in schools. The thesis of this seminar is that this very old form of direct democracy can be facilitated and made more broadly accessible by allowing remote users to participate in the decision rooms and by unleashing the right technology in and around those physical rooms. This rough design slide presentation sketches a possible interface, flow and function set for the remote users.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
