M/617/3039 Computing Projects, OTHM level 6 diploma in information technology

Aim: This is a practical unit with two projects:
Creation of an e-commerce solution
Creation of a Mobile application.
The aim of the first part of this unit is to provide learners with an understanding of how and why businesses and organisations develop E-Commerce strategies and the elements and resources required to set up an E-Commerce site as an implementation of organisational strategies. The learner will develop the skills required to create such an e-commerce solution.
The aim of the first part of this unit is to develop learners` ability to identify and select relevant APIs to use within a mobile application of their own choice or from a given scenario, in addition to testing and documenting against the initial design requirement.

Learning Outcome 1: Be able to plan an E- Commerce project.

Learning Outcome 2: Be able to design and implement an E-Commerce solution.

Learning Outcome 3: Be able to develop a mobile application.

Learning Outcome 4: Be able to implement API to a mobile application.

Scenario

In this assignment you will plan and create an e-commerce solution and a Mobile application. Ideally you should work for a "live client" e.g. a local business who wants a business solution which could be an advanced website and a mobile application.

Task 1 Project Plan

Once you have agreed your e-commerce and mobile application projects with your tutor, produce a detailed proposal document that include the following:
An assessment of the technologies involved in setting up a secure E- Commerce site.
An evaluation of payment systems that are integral to E-Commerce success.
You are required to create project specifications for your projects.
You are required to create project plans for your projects.

Task 2 - A working E-commerce solution

You are now required to follow your project specification and plan to create an e- commerce solution.
Design and implement an E-Commerce solution.
Test the functionality of the solution against the specification.
Critically evaluate the success of the E-Commerce solution.

Task 3 A working mobile application

You are now required to follow your project specification and plan to create a fully working mobile application.
Develop a mobile application in a chosen platform (iOS/Android or similar) utilising multiple APIs.
Test the mobile application.
Create a design for an application that will utilise a range of APIs.
Test the mobile application after API implementation.
Critically evaluate the success of the mobile solution.
Critically evaluate the success of the API solution in your mobile application.
