This is a course about the fundamentals of the online/digital world.  It’s aim to provide a set of concepts and tools with which to view online developments.  These concepts are the language and the vocabulary which can explain and also predict how technology impacts different industries.

The course is not an overview of EC or IT developments but rather ways in which we can make sense of EC and IT developments.  Thus, the emphasis is not on the “what” but on the “why.”

In the first 5 weeks, different concepts and their significance are explained.  The role of these concepts in explaining the success of dominant, marquee companies is also discussed.

In the 6th and final week, participants observe how these concepts apply to different contexts.  These contexts are case studies of multiple companies. Actual class discussions are shown to illustrate how the concepts can be used to understand and predict IT-driven transformations.

by Arghya is taking this course right now, spending 10 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
I am interested to become a part of this course, but due yo some technical problem I am unable to locate the course in the coursera. What should I do?
