This subject was previously known as Internet Collaboration and Organisation.
Internet-based collaboration and innovation is the focus of this subject, recognising that networked computing has had a significant impact on both the public and private sectors. Increasingly, the Internet is reshaping the way we relate to, and collaborate with, others. This can happen in formal organised settings such as the workplace, and also increasingly in less formal settings, from collective movements to crowds of strangers. In this subject you will learn how and why the Internet can be used to promote collaboration, how these processes are driven and how they can be used and optimised in a given setting. As a result you will become more effective in participating in and managing collaborative processes involving the Internet.
