Course Overview

Do you want to know how to set up e-Commerce sites?

E-business varies enormously, but it is possible to learn quite quickly how to set up a website that sells physical or digital products. This course, over four evenings, is aimed at computing professionals with some knowledge of HTML, and leads to you being able to:

  • Identify the key elements of an e-commerce project, some typical business models to support,
  • Identify four technical options for building e-commerce solutions
  • Capture essential information needed for an e-commerce project
  • Implement an e-commerce prototype and estimate timescales and costs to implement a full solution
  • Evaluate e-commerce prototypes
  • Recognise typical pitfalls and trade offs in e-commerce development

Presenter David Oxley leads you through technical challenges such as setting up online shopping carts, secure hosting of digital content, digital rights management (DRM), credit-card transactions etc, as well as covering the broader business and customer issues that must be addressed in successful e-commerce.

The BCS Edinburgh Branch has been running Professional Awareness Courses over the years to give local professionals an introduction to new subjects. The course is open to members and non-members. BCS and Members receive a discount on the fees, as do members of ScotlandIS.
