Learning Activities

The following tasks are required of you for this section:

  1. Study the Seminar notes for this section and follow up with the additional readings until you feel you are ready to meet the learning outcomes for this section.
  2. Answer the study questions in your own notes. You can also post comments or queries on the study questions in the General Discussion Forum. Be sure to stay subscribed to this forum so that you do not miss posts from other learners.
  3. Submit an answer to one of the discussion questions in the Section 3.1 Discussion.
    Note: The forum is set up so that you have to submit your answer to a discussion question before you can read the answers provided by your fellow learners:
    1. Question: On the face of it, replacing paper-based transactions with electronic transactions should provide environmental benefits. In terms of business processes, what needs to be considered before making such changes? (maximum three paragraphs)

    2. Question: Nicholas Negroponte put forward the concept of moving bits instead of atoms to move information. Consider this with regard to the ability of ICT to reduce carbon emissions through the use of broadband technologies, and provide examples of the potential for transforming product form or delivery (maximum three paragraphs).

  4. Post a response to the postings of at least one of your fellow learners.
  5. Add or edit at least one entry in the Student-created Glossary.
  6. Complete the self-test, which has randomized questions, as many times as you wish. You will get a slightly different set of questions each time.
