Course Structure

Lectures/Workshops: The module is delivered in 7 weekly sessions. Each session comprises a mix of lectures/seminars, tutorial and practical activities and group discussion activities. You are required to attend these sessions; failure to do so will seriously impair your capacity to complete the assessment items to a satisfactory standard. 
You will also be required to spend additional time each week reading the required course readings.

Seminar work: The seminar work is conducted in your own time. There is one compulsory checkpoint meeting for the group work that all group members must attend and one optional meeting. For both your individual and group work you are encouraged to arrange individual meetings with the course coordinator as required.

Course materials 
All course materials will be placed in UniConnect. Information about access and registration will be provided in Week 1.

Assessment Information

The module has two major examination assignments, 1) an individual report for the lecture course, and 2) a group assignment for the seminar course where you will prepare an online digital information resource.

Students must pass both parts to complete the module. Each part will be graded out of 50 and the total /100 will determine the final module grade.

Lecture Course Description

Enterprise Information Management (EIM) encompasses the business and technology functions involved in the design and management of corporate information resources. The focus is on the design of useful and useable digital information products, their management across their entire lifecycle from creation to destruction and on the technologies and services to achieve this.

This course provides a comprehensive study of enterprise information management concepts and practices, and their use in achieving business objectives. The course examines the theories behind strategic information management and applies them to digital information initiatives within an organisation.

Topics covered include: information service design, use-centred information design methods, information and document design, information organisation and technologies for unstructured information management. Specific emphasis is placed on the design of usable, scalable, standards-based information resources.

Students will gain experience in undertaking information needs analysis and designing a digital information service.

The lecture course is closely integrated with the EIM seminar and students are required to complete both the lecture and seminar to complete the full module.
