General Information

Overview

The business world has been witnessing the digital revolution since the beginning of the 1990s. The latest developments in digital technologies are going to result in another wave of transformations which will change how a business is operated and managed. Business organisations that fail to undergo digital transformation will not be able to keep pace with changing customer expectations and remain competitive. The objective of this unit is to provide you with an overview of emerging digital technologies such as IoT, Blockchain, and Artificial Intelligence that would impact business organisations. The unit will help you obtain a better understanding of these emerging digital technologies with underlying designs, working principles, functions, and capabilities. You will also have an opportunity to critically analyse the emerging technologies, their utilities, impacts, advantages and disadvantages, and current and future applications in e-business.

Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

Feedback from Student feed back

Feedback

Some students dislike weekly group work as they find it difficult to work with others.

Recommendation

Closer and more regular moderation of student group works by tutors can reduce the chance of unresolved issues within student groups.

The Australian Computer Society (ACS) recognises the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). SFIA is adopted by organisations, governments and individuals in many countries and provides a widely used and consistent definition of ICT skills. SFIA is increasingly being used when developing job descriptions and role profiles. ACS members can use the MYSFIA tool (https://www.acs.org.au/professionalrecognition/mysfia-b2c.html) to build a skills profile.

This unit contributes to the following workplace skills as defined by SFIA 7:
  • Emerging Technology Monitoring (EMRG)
