E-Business Technologies, Foundations and Practice (T320)
This is a Level 3 course. Level 3 courses build on study skills and subject knowledge acquired from studies at Levels 1 and 2. They are intended only for students who have recent experience of higher education in a related subject, preferably with the OU. Applicants need a familiarity with communication technology, and language and modelling techniques used by technologists, such as they would get from appropriate courses at Level 2 offered by the Faculty of Mathematics, Computing and Technology, or their equivalent. Communication and information technologies (T215) would be particularly useful. Alternatively, an understanding of computer networks and network protocols (e.g. TCP/IP), and an awareness of security issues would provide appropriate relevant background knowledge. Applicants should be experienced in using a computer for working with documents, spreadsheets and accessing the World Wide Web. Applicants also need good writing and basic mathematical skills so that they can produce a well-structured report and work with basic algebraic equations and carry out numerical calculations.
Students must use the online eTMA system to submit their tutor-marked assignments (TMAs). The end-of-module assessment (EMA) is an individual project, which must also be submitted electronically. The project will account for approximately a third of your study time on this course. Each assessment component (TMA and project) consists of practical work and a written report, with the exception of the first TMA which is made up entirely of a written report.
