"This study investigates a framework of philosophical approaches and the fundamental aspects of course design for an Electronic Commerce course. The knowledge gained has enabled the author to make rational strategic decisions about course enhancements, as opposed to doing ad-hoc updates that may not have enhanced student learning. Furthermore, this approach was useful for an understanding of the course’s position within the institution’s programmes and industry requirements, and the reasons for the course revision changes. This approach can be applied to the revision of any course and aspects of this approach could improve the course revision process."
