Abstract

The Telecommunications Act of 1998, approved by the Spanish House of Representatives, set up the beginning of the telecommunications market liberalization process in Spain and the establishment of a new economic and social model based on the Information Society Paradigm, as already highlighted by the European Commission in 1993. Taking advantage of the necessity for undergraduate students to have a subject related to this matter, a new course on Politics of Telecommunications and Information Society was initially designed by a group of five professors from the Technical University of Madrid, four of which still maintain the project alive after eight years. The resulting course is teaching at the Technical University of Madrid since 1999. The course was initially conceived as an e-learning initiative based on the well-known Moodle Learning Management System and it comprises the next four lessons: Information Society, Telecommunications Regulation in Spain, Telecommunication Standardization and Certification and, e-Commerce & Internet Security.
