Preface -- Chapter 1: An overview of connectedness -- Chapter 2: ICTD and Rural Connectedness -- Chapter 3: A case of Rural Connectedness: The Malaysian Rural Internet Center (RICs) Users’ Experience -- Afterword.

ICT Development for Social and Rural Connectedness provides an introduction to the concept of 'connectedness', and explores how this socio-psychological term has evolved during the age of the Internet. The book surveys the principles of ICT for development (ICTD), and closely examines how ICT has played a pivotal role in the rural community development of various countries. To highlight the continued benefits of ICT in these regions, the book presents an in-depth case study that analyzes the connectedness within the rural internet centers of Malaysia. The book is intended primarily for researchers and practitioners as a reference guide to ICTD in rural environments.
