Enhancing Digital Government Capacity for Local Government Officials

Publication from the COLA's Workshop 2020

In 2020, online applications and computer software have played a more important role in maintaining people’s everyday life during the COVID-19 pandemic. The government agencies had to adjust their operations to meet the needs of the citizens. As an educational institution, COLA initiated a workshop aiming at raising awareness of digital transformation and developing digital capacity, especially among local administrative officials in the northeastern provinces of Thailand.

Under close cooperation with Khon Kaen University’s central office on Digital University Development and Smart Learning Academy, COLA succeeded in disseminating valuable knowledge among the participants and inspiring them to embrace digital transformation in their work field.


To distribute the knowledge more widely among local governments and local administrations in other regions of Thailand, COLA published this book. We hope that it will be an efficient tool resulting from the workshop and soon be recognized as beneficial studying material for civil servants at the national and the local level, experts, lecturers, and students at Thai universities as well as the general public interested in the topic.
