The impact of the outreach programs designed in keeping with this learning module could include one or more of the points stated below:

  • The primary target group(s) will be equipped with better knowledge and understanding of using the Internet.
  • They will be in the position to pass on their newly acquired digital literacy skills and knowledge to other people including members of their community.
  • The community at large will become more aware of their surroundings, environment, ecology and trends in global development via online sources of knowledge and information. Their outlook, worldview, thought processes and learning capacity will broaden, which would positively impact their personalities. They will become enlightened citizens with greater sensibilities and a better understanding of the society and the world they live in.
  • Wikipedia, its sister projects, the Wikimedia movement in general, and sources of free and open knowledge will get enriched and improved. It will be a win-win approach.
