Norris, Donald M.; Olson, Mark A.
This guidebook is based on the belief that e-business applications will transform academia and academic support experiences, with learners participating in distributed learning environments that mix physical and virtual learning resources in many combinations, and it offers insights into the strategies and planning needed to develop a college campus infrastructure of e-business applications, products, and services. The ten chapters cover the following topics: (1) "What Is E-Business and Why Is It Important?"; (2) "The Status of E-Business Today and Tomorrow"; (3) "Future E-Business Applications in Education"; (4) "Building Migration Paths for E-Business in Education"; (5) "Technology Infrastructures, Tools, and Competencies"; (6) "Investing in Technologies To Support E-Business: Important Roles for the Business Officer" (7) "Policies, Standards, and Legal and Security Competencies"; (8) "Strategic Alliances and Co-Sourcing Competencies"; (9) "New Tools: Electronic Publishing, Learningware, Learning Agents, and Online Communities"; and (10) Paving the Way for E-Business: 20 Initiatives for Your Learning Enterprise."
