Abstract:

The authors of this presentation are members of a network called Nordic-Baltic Network for Internationalization of SME´s or Nobanet. As part of the Nobanet network Akureyri University Iceland developed an e-business course together with the partner institutions from the Nobanet. The goal is to provide students with necessary knowledge about basic principles of e-business and to improve practical skills to use online tools and applications. During the development of the course, so-called MOOCs were used as an example. The course contains 10 module, each 1 ECTS. It is possible to take one module, a few or the entire course. The E-learning course materials will be integrated in other courses at Akureyri University and will be available on the Eliademy platform. Eliademy was chosen to host the course, as it is a free platform for instructors to create, share and teach online courses. The course can also be completed as a self-learning course with support and guidelines provided by the instructors. In addition, e-learning materials can be used for other projects and relevant thesis topics. In this presentation, the authors will explain how this course was developed and designed, so that it can be used in various ways in many countries at flexible times.
