About your Course

This online course explores the impact digital networks can have on an organisation through the exploitation of modern IT infrastructures.

Through networked IT systems, information can be shared more widely and efficiently, improving productivity and boosting profitability.

In this course, you see just what effects and benefits your organisation can see from managing a global, digitised business environment.

Networking can also be important at a more local level. Both organisations and individuals can be affected in various, but often conflicting, ways. This course examines how networked computer-based information systems can promote discovery, communication and collaboration.

You will begin by taking an overall view of the Internet and understanding the ways that people can use it to communicate. Since communication enables collaboration, you will go on to study support systems and how they can help management decision making in organisations.

In the business context, a major promise of the Internet is the development of electronic commerce. You will therefore consider the potential range of operation, benefits and limitations of e-commerce.

Finally, you will study the ethical and other human level issues which all these developments bring with them. Like previous technological revolutions, global information systems have significant implications for both individuals and society, and we need to be aware of these as management decision makers.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Distinguish between various forms of networked information technology
  • Understand the concept of the Internet and explain the ways in which it enables communication
  • Demonstrate how networks facilitate collaboration between users
  • Describe the main features of electronic commerce and critically appreciate its dimensions, benefits and limitations
  • Demarcate managerial strategies for using networks
  • Identify the ethical impacts of global networked information technology
