REVIEW OF BLOCK 1
Technology does not exist in a vacuum
• Business context
• Trust issues
• Standards, connections (network effects)
Ways to discuss / analyse tech in context
• Models
• Can be used to categorise, compare & evaluate
EXAMPLE - TECHNOLOGY
ADOPTION
Can be used to discuss & identify an organisation's attitude
to technology
Use to categorise an organisation
• Be sure to identify the overall population
Not really aimed at "value" judgements
• Not everyone can be an "early adopter"
• Sometimes an advantage to be second
• Some technologies not actually needed
TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION MODEL
Explain what the model shows and
how you are using it
USING THE MODELS
Not all the models may be relevant
• You won’t have space to discuss them all anyway
Use the diagrams
• Adapt them if required
• Diagrams NOT included in wordcount!
For top marks make “critical use” of them
•
•
•
•
Are they actually helpful?
Do they have any short-comings?
Can be challenging within the word count
(This is why marks 95+ are hard to achieve)

TMA - THE QUESTION
Write an essay analysing the part the following organisation's ecommerce activities have played in bringing about our current
'digital revolution':
Amazon
In coming to your answer, you should ensure that you specifically
address the following three questions.
Revolution: What is meant by the term 'digital revolution' and
how has this revolution affected the organisation in question?
Technology adoption: Which of this organisation's products,
services and standards have 'crossed the chasm' to mainstream
consumer adoption?
Industry value chain: What challenges and opportunities have
this organisation created in an established industry value chain
and what effect has this had on transaction costs?
LOOK AT THE MARK
SCHEME
This is the same scheme used by tutors to mark
There no tricks or traps!
There is no "right" (or "wrong") answer
There are answers that are better (or worse)
•
•
•
•
At providing a coherent argument
At critically using models to address issues
Presented (headings, paragraphs, spelling)
At providing references
TMA - APPROACH
You do need to have read ALL of block 1
Highlight things that may be useful for the TMA
Use the suggested headings structure
Draw up an outline plan
• What diagrams will you use?
Write your first draft
• Do not worry about wordcount
TMA - REWRITE
You are probably over the wordcount
• Possibly quite a lot!
Re-read each paragraph
• Is it background? (only need 1)
• Will the audience already know this? (e.g models)
• Is your argument still valid without this paragraph?
If "yes" to any - Consider removing it
If still over wordcount look at re-wording
• Simpler phrases, extraneous adjectives etc.
TMA - EVALUATE
Check your wordcount
• Some lee-way for diferent ways of counting
If possible, get someone else to read it
• Do NOT send it me, I can't comment on it
• Do NOT post extracts on line!
Do KNOT re-lie on you're spilling chequer(!)
STUDY HINTS
Make sure you have the study guide and know where you
should be
Don’t let yourself fall behind
If you start to fall behind discuss it with your tutor
Work on assignments as you study the material
Always plan to submit your assignments at least 3 days
before the final cut-off date
APPROACHING TMAS
Study the course
• Don't try and just pick out those bits you think might fit into the
TMA. You will need it all later!
Read all of the TMA instructions carefully early in the block
• Don't leave it to the end
Keep the assignment beside you as you study the block
• make notes as you see content that might be useful

understand the concepts.
You must not use quotations to replace explanations that
should be in your own words.
Give a reference to the source of the information that you
have used to give your own explanation.

Reference in a standard way
Quotations should be used for standards where the wording
should not be changed.
