Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

In this paper we want you to learn about the most important and relevant digital business technologies for organisations today. More importantly, we want you to understand these technologies from a research perspective, and develop the skills necessary to critically review this research. Material is delivered by a series of lectures - which you download as Powerpoint files. These are introduced with a video included in the presentation, but will mostly include audio only. You will also be expected to contribute to online discussions, undertake various activities, and read the assigned readings. You will have an opportunity to research a subject of interest to you, and prepare your own set of video lectures for the rest of the class to watch and comment on. The major "capstone" project for the paper is the preparation and presentation of a research based e-poster.

NOTE: This paper is appraised by students after every offering. We endeavour to incorporate the feedback provided by this form appraisal process. Based on feedback received from previous students, a number of improvements have been made. These include:

  • Greater incentives to prepare for class
  • Addition of new topics and more readings
  • Less assessment
