IT & e-Business Strategy 2015


Welcome to the first crowdsourcing exercise of the IT & e-Business Strategy course!

Idea generation starts on Monday 02 November and will end on Sunday 29 November (midnight).

We would like you to propose a topic for the class to be held on Monday December 14. The topic should be

    •    Related to the aims, domains, and areas of the course

    •    Motivated (please write a ~100-word text, including possibly sources / links associated with the idea)

    •    Also, we encourage you to comment and vote on others’ ideas.

Finally, some important points:

    •    You should not post an idea already posted, thus each post should be different.
    •    By posting earlier, there is less likelihood that the ‘idea’ is already taken, don’t leave it to the last minute!
    •    At the end of the challenge we will reward the top five people in terms of engagement with the site (posting, commenting, etc.)!
