Features and Benefits


&>For undergraduate and graduate courses in Electronic Commerce.

Electronic Commerce 2008, the #1 best seller in the business school market, offers a comprehensive managerial approach to electronic commerce.

This new edition emphasizes the impact that social computing has on the business world and global economy.

What kind of approach do you take when teaching an E-Commerce course?

Electronic commerce can be approached from two major aspects: technological and managerial.

This text emphasizes a managerial perspective. However, the authors recognize the importance of technology and have decided to incorporate several features:

The essentials of security in Chapter 11; Pg. XX.

Infrastructure and system development in Chapter 19; Pg. XX.

Detailed technology material are included in the files, appendices, and tutorials on the book's Web site; Pg. XX.

How important is it that the textbook you adopt reflects the most recent and progressive nature of EC in today's corporate world?

In order to show the most recent capabilities of E-Commerce in the real world, the authors have provided multiple features throughout the text.

Extensive, vivid examples of large corporations, small businesses, and government and not-for-profit agencies from all over the world show students the cost, justification, and the innovative ways real corporations are using EC in their operations; Pg. XX.
Topics such as networking, e-learning, e-government, e-strategy, web based supply chain systems, collaborative commerce, mobile commerce, and EC economics are presented from a theoretical point of view as well as from the application side; Pg. XX.
Throughout the text, theoretical foundations are presented ranging from consumer behavior to the economics theory of competition. Website resources, exercises, and extensive references supplement the theoretical presentations to enhance each concept; Pg. XX.

Other Points of Distinction

What learning aids do you find most beneficial to students when trying to help them understand course material?

The text offers a number of helpful tools to

aid your students:


  Opening Vignettes. Each chapter opens with a real-world example that illustrates the importance of EC to modern corporations; Pg. XX.


  EC Application Cases. In-chapter cases highlight real-world problems encountered by organizations as they develop and implement EC. Questions follow each case to help direct student attention to the implications of the case material; Pg. XX.


  Managerial Issues. At the end of every chapter, we explore some of the special concerns managers face as they adapt to doing business in cyberspace; Pg. XX.


  End-of-Chapter Exercises. Questions for Discussion promote class discussion and develop critical-thinking skills, Internet Exercises require students to surf the Internet, and hands-on exercises send students to interesting Web sites to conduct research, investigate an application, download demos, or learn about state-of-the-art technology. The Team Assignment and Role Playing exercises are challenging group projects designed to foster teamwork; Pg. XX.


  Real-World Cases. Each chapter ends with a real-world case, which is presented in somewhat more depth than the in-chapter EC Application Cases. Questions follow each case relating the case to the topics covered in the chapter; Pg. XX.
