Important Information for Students on Moodle Course Availability

You may not see a full list of all your expected courses in your Moodle My Courses list or in this category. This does not necessarily mean that your course registrations are incorrect. There are two possible reasons:

  • Departments/Tutors make courses visible to Students in Moodle when the course is ready for teaching
  • Not all courses use Moodle.

You can use the Study tab in Campus Connect to check the courses you are registered for or contact your department who can also provide information on their use of Moodle.

This course provides an introduction to the core concepts in data and information management. It is centered around the core skills of identifying organizational information requirements, modelling them using conceptual data modelling techniques, converting the conceptual data models into relational data models, and implementing and utilizing a relational database using an industrial-strength database management system.
In addition, the course covers how the Internet works and its key protocols. Within that context, it then addresses the technologies used for web development, including scripting languages and their potential. Web Services and related technologies are also covered as well as aspects of network security.

The course draws together a wide variety of conceptual models and frameworks, existing empirical research, statistical and case study material to provide a coherent insight into e-business from a management perspective. In doing so, it will focus upon the contribution of e-business technologies to the effectiveness and efficiency of both large and small entrepreneurial firms and the impact that these are having on business and industry at large. The course will be case-orientated; students will be given cases to analyse and discuss with reference to relevant management concepts. There will also be contributions from practitioners.
The course aims to
• Apply ebusiness concepts and theories to real-life business scenarios
• Demonstrate an advanced understanding of strategic importance of digital technologies
• Analyse how digital technologies transform traditional businesses and enable new business models
