Focussing on the B2C sector, the course begins with an overview of the online environment in terms of technologies, sectoral adoption rates, user-profiles etc. The course then proceeds with a focus on the vendor-consumer encounter in cyberspace. In doing so, the course considers topics including: usability; accessibility; motivation (flow); online trust, and information processing.
This course aims to equip students with both knowledge of digital marketing together with knowledge how to practically apply this to the competitive challenges and issues facing organisations.
