There is an interesting experiment brewing that you can all be a part of.
Farzal, a senior manager at PixSense and teacher at IBA is preparing to teach a course on E-Commerce Entrepreneurship in Spring 2008.
As an interesting twist – he’s trying to make this course into an industry-wide participative event. Here’s how it works – Anyone from the industry can participate in framing the curriculum and topic-focus of the course, and also provide case studies, examples, tips and thoughts and writing at the course blog: http://ecommerce.pkeducation.com/blog/
That’s right – Anyone can post there.
The aim is for the blog to become a place where the industry can talk directly with the students of that course.
The full message from Farzal after the jump. What do you think though – will this work?
We all have personal interests in seeing Ã¢â‚¬Å“betterÃ¢â‚¬Â talent coming out of universities, especially in relation to IT, and in general, related to entrepreneurship. IT entrepreneurship is very close to heart for all of us, and several of us have written about it on our blogs and talked about it in media/universities. So this is one chance we have to get some of our ideas and wish-list across to come of the brightest students.
Please help me in framing the curriculum for this course. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve setup a blog for this where anyone can post as author:
The Ã¢â‚¬ËœfilesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ page has an attachment to subjects list discussed in previous course. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve also listed the course definition & technical subjects these students have gone through.
Visits by industry professionals, an e-commerce venture with focus on business plan and funding along with basic implementation, and many other things can be covered. So please give your input.
The blog is open for everyone to be an author Ã¢â‚¬â€œ so you can write a new entry of your own or reply to an existing entry. Please go to http://ecommerce.pkeducation
