Assignment title 
In this unit, students will gain an understanding of how and why businesses and organisations develop e-commerce strategies to remain competitive in the global market. Students will develop an appreciation of the elements and resources required to set up an e-commerce site and will be engaged in the design and implementation of their own strategies that would, in reality, form part of a secure e-commerce site.

Students will examine the impact that e-commerce has on society and the global market for consumers, buyers and sellers in terms of the benefits and drawbacks of online purchasing. Students will research and investigate the technologies involved in setting up a secure e-commerce site in preparation for their own e-commerce strategy. Students will devise a strategy based on an element of e-commerce, for example designing a shopping cart, an ordering system, payment system or an online marketing system. Their design should be fully implemented and evaluated in terms of its success or failure.

On successful completion of this unit, students will have gained a technical and a practical insight into e-commerce strategy, design and development. As a result, they will develop skills such as communication literacy, critical thinking, analysis, reasoning and interpretation, which are crucial for gaining employment and developing academic competence.
