Consumer protection is a serious issue for financial inclusion advocates. When working with low-income people who are often financially inexperienced, it's critical that when they do seek out financial services, they have a positive interaction. While many governments are expanding their consumer protection policies, there is often a significant gap between what's required by law and what's happening in practice. Mystery shopping is one research technique that enables policy makers to truly understand what's happening in the financial product sales process. In India and Mexico, staff proved unwilling to offer low-cost savings accounts, even when they were a good match for customers. In Kenya, banking agents skimmed extra money and took sensitive account information from custoemrs. In Mexico, prospective customers received different amounts of information about the costs of financial products depending on how sales staff perceived their experience level. And across the board, financial product information remains difficult to understand and explain.

Digital inclusion - closing the technology gap between the have's and have not's - may be a priority for some federal and state agencies, but the delivery of measurable results happens mostly at the local level. This is particularly true for broadband. Too many variations between cultures, geography, economic priorities, languages and other factors exist for cookie cutter attempts to get underserved constituents online AND maximizing broadband technology.
A Broadband Technologies Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant to the City of Chicago launched activities to educate and motivate constituents within nine Smart Communities to use the Net. Karen Mossberger, Ph.D., School of Public Affairs, Arizona State University, describes the impacts of programs that included workshops, advertising, skills training, and community portals. Dr. Mossberger's team conducted surveys in 2008, 2011 and 2013 to compare adoption and usage between the Smart Communities and the rest of Chicago.
Listeners learn some of the how-to's for creating and implementing effective digital inclusion programs. In addition, Dr. Mossberger reveals some of the trendsetting methods she used to measure the results that adoption programs produce, as well as upcoming research that will shed more light on how to create successful programs.

The most recent renovation to the lower-level of Jackson Library was the result of an on-going collaboration between the University Libraries and Undergraduate Studies at UNCG. The two units raised funds to expand the university’s multimedia literacy services, the Digital Media Commons and the Digital ACT Studio. The renovations created free-standing consultation space for the Digital ACT Studio, and added three enhanced maker spaces in the Digital Media Commons; one for 3D and electronics making, one for video making, and another for gaming. The project took a year to complete, from planning to finish. The Department Heads of both the DMC and DACTS worked closely with university administrators, designers, contractors, and our facilities department to bring the project to a successful end by fall 2015.
