E-Commerce Toolbox teachers guide
This area links to the projects which provide summative assessments (project development) for the skills learnt in the resource packs. The Diploma of Web Development consists of three projects:
Project 1 -Build a dynamic website. This project requires the design and development of a brochure site using dynamic technologies. It consists of six stages.
Project 2 - Add e-commerce functionality to a website. This project requires the learner to develop a prototype to extend the website with e-commerce facilities. It consists of six stages.
Project 3 - Website performance. This project requires the learner to review and implement web server performance and maintenance procedures. It consists of four stages.
NOTE: No project assessment has been provided for the electives.
It is advisable for the learners to complete the projects in sequence, since Project Two builds on the skills of Project One, and so on. If learners don’t complete the projects in sequence, the facilitator will need to consider providing some “inputs” to the projects. For example, Project Three uses the requirements document developed in Project Two. If this has not been developed the facilitator may need to consider making a sample requirements document available.
Units of Competency
To qualify for the diploma, a learner must complete all the common core and specialist units covered by the three projects plus electives, three of which are included in the Toolbox. The three projects consist of a number of stages, each corresponding to a unit of competency.
The table below lists each unit of competency together with the associated project stage.
