Morten Goodwin received the Ph.D. degree from Aalborg University, Denmark, Department of Computer Science. In August Morten defended his Ph.D. thesis with the title "Towards Automated eGovernment Monitoring".

The thesis introduces innovative methods and tools to automatically measure public web sites. The tools Morten Morten presented can be used to examine to what extent web sites work for people with special needs and disabilities, and whether the web sites contain services and information useful to the public. Morten Goodwin's research will simplify quality assurance of public web sites, and enable more rapid and objective measurements, which in turn will increase the quality of public web sites.
