Course Description
Participants will work with the assumption that e-commerce and the information age have permeated every aspect of their daily lives.

The course is expected to raise that awareness through self-assessments and begin to look at the mechanisms and processes of this information e-commerce environment that surrounds us and integrates itself into our daily lives.

Participants will inventory their own interactions with e-commerce and complete a cause and effect survey.

Outcome
Participants will be assessed on their understanding of the e-commerce environment and their being able to apply that understanding prescriptively to organizational and life situations.

Assessment
Participants will self-assess their current situation(s) as they touch on the information e-commerce age. They will complete a cause and effect survey along with a final paper outlining the environment and prescriptions they see for themselves as they continue to interact with these new technologies.
