Today, e-commerce sites depend on a multitude of factors to determine their success. The E-Commerce Design curriculum provides an overview of e-commerce and Web page design for use in marketing and selling online. The courses provide techniques to plan and to design a platform-independent commerce Web site. They focus on web business strategies, the hardware and software tools necessary for internet commerce, comparison and selection of commerce architecture, security considerations, and the planning of a complete business-to-consumer and business-to-business site.
Courses in each level (Foundation, Core and Advanced Track) must be completed prior to advancing to the next level. Where more than one course is offered within a level, courses may be taken in any sequence.
