The course has been designed as an introduction to e-business and related concepts.
In the first half of the course, social and business aspects of e-business will be discussed and e-marketing, e-commerce and e-operations concepts will be explained. Electronic payment systems will be described and legal and ethical issues in the context of e-Business will be discussed. The second half of the course will deal with the technical side of e-business applications such as web development technologies, interoperability, standards and Internet related security issues. HTML, XML and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) technologies will be presented.
Welcome to the pilot presentation of the curriculum resources that have been prepared by the European Union-funded project: ‘The lived experience of climate change: e-learning and virtual mobility’, or ‘Leche’ for short (with apologies to Spanish speakers where the acronym translates as ‘milk’). I am sure that none of us need telling that climate change represents a huge global challenge. These curriculum resources and what you, the students, learn from, and bring to them, are a contribution to meeting that challenge.

Klimaatverandering is één van de cruciale themas van deze tijd. Als zodanig is het reeds geanalyseerd vanuit verschillende invalshoeken. In de modulen over The Lived Experience of Climate Change wordt daar een essentieel perspectief aan toegevoegd, dat van de lived experience, de directe, dagelijkse ervaring.
Hoe dit perspectief de bestaande wetenschappelijke benaderingen aanvult, hoe wetenschappelijk onderzoek op dit terrein mogelijk is, en hoe relevant deze kennis is voor beleidsmakers, daarover gaan deze modulen.
De modulen over ‘The Lived Experience of Climate Change’ bestaan uit de volgende materialen (downloadbare pdf bestanden):
Module 1 ‘Introduction to climate change in the context of sustainable development’ (tekstboek + werkboek)
Module 2 ‘The lived experience of climate change’ (tekstboek + werkboek)
Module 3 ‘Interdisciplinary methodologies for investigation into the ‘lived experiences’ of climate change’ (tekstboek + werkboek) Water Case Study (tekstboek)

Oceans Solutions is a free 6-week online course offered by the University of Western Australia (UWA) Class2Go programme and taught by Carlos M. Duarte, Director of the Oceans Institute and Research Professor with the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC),
This course focuses particularly on the Indian Ocean, which is arguably the least explored of the world's oceans. However, and like many other oceans, it is under stress from overfishing, pollution, climate change and sea level rise.
Students will analyse and discuss the great challenges humanity will face, and is already facing, due to the increase of the world’s population and address how an intelligent and innovative use of the ocean can sustainably and safely deliver the key resources necessary to meet the challenge of providing fair livelihoods to 9 billion people by 2050.
Professor Duarte will argue that while we live on a planet mostly covered with water, we get most of our resources from land, and we need to reverse that thinking.
A learning platorm is an integrated set of resources, tools, and interactive online services for teachers, learners, and others involved in education to support and enhance educational delivery and management (Wikipedia, 2011). The term ‘learning platform’ often refers to a number of tools and services available in a range of products known by various names, including learning management system (LMS), virtual learning environment (VLE), course management system (CMS) and learning content management system (LCMS) providing learning experiences and content management. The term ‘learning platform’ also includes the personal learning environment (PLE) that helps learners to keep control and manage their own learning by personalizing the content and process.
