The Challenges in Developing VET Competencies in E-Commerce.
A formative evaluation was begun of an innovative project funded by the Australian National Training Authority (ANTA) to develop competencies and qualifications in e-commerce. The formative evaluation was designed to focus on inputs, processes, and interim outputs, identifying both good practice and areas for improvement. Findings to date indicated development of competencies and qualifications in e-commerce was challenging developers for a number of reasons. First, there was an ongoing, international debate about the meaning of the term e-commerce. Second, the field of e-commerce was fluid, due to the continual development of new technologies that enable the creation of new business practices. Third, the field of e-commerce was in flux, evidenced by the failure of many business models during 2000 and the emergence of new business models. (YLB)
