Modern businesses are subject to varying levels of digital disruption and must adjust quickly to new conditions. These disruptive forces are usually based on new technologies that need ICT systems for effective utilization. This course discusses how these modern systems evolved over time and how the digitisation of data has changed science and business through the use of technologies aimed at supporting decision making. The course will look at the ethical implications of the widespread use of these systems and how governance frameworks are used to guide businesses in the ethical use of ICT.

Academic integrity is the ethical standard of university participation. It ensures that students graduate as a result of proving they are competent in their discipline. This is integral in maintaining the value of academic qualifications. Each industry has expectations and standards of the skills and knowledge within that discipline and these are reflected in assessment.
Academic integrity means that you do not engage in any activity that is considered to be academic fraud; including plagiarism, collusion or outsourcing any part of any assessment item to any other person. You are expected to be honest and ethical by completing all work yourself and indicating in your work which ideas and information were developed by you and which were taken from others. You cannot provide your assessment work to others. You are also expected to provide evidence of wide and critical reading, usually by using appropriate academic references.
In order to minimise incidents of academic fraud, this course may require that some of its assessment tasks, when submitted to Canvas, are electronically checked through Turnitin. This software allows for text comparisons to be made between your submitted assessment item and all other work to which Turnitin has access.
