Organizational design of Internet University

1. introduction
This project is to create an organization of Internet University without central back office and describe the contents in designing the organization. Chapter 1 will provide the definition of the organization, moreover briefly illustrate the type of this organization and growing challenges, plus the reasonable solutions. The organizational strategy and structure will be mentioned concisely as well, but details of them will be respectively analyzed afterwards. Analysis of environments included external and internal factors, and illustrated effectiveness model of organization will be provided in chapter 2. Two organizational structures will be compared with each other in terms of vertical (efficiency) and horizontal (learning) in chapter 3. Certain approaches of organization steering will be proposed and analyzed in chapter 4. The effects of innovation and change to organization will be described in chapter 5 and finally the transaction cost will be evaluated in the last chapter.
2. organizational definition
As mentioned this internet university will be constructed without the central back office, which means the processes such as recruiting, enrolling, teaching, hiring, paying, administrating, managing are all available on the internet. To design this organization and implement the idea, personally I suggest to start it as an small example, in this case the investment and cost could be effectively controlled, it also could be improved later rely on the feedbacks as well. For that reason, this organization could be designed as a small unit, the architecture of staff is kind of informal and network connections as well, employees could be self-prescribed to do their own job, whilst the information are shared in the group, every staff member is encouraged to propose the suggestions.

...people say that the Internet provides people with a lot of valuable information. Others think access to so much information creates problems. Which view do you agree with? Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion. There is no doubt that the Internet is one of the greatest humankind's inventions of the last century. It is fast and easy way to get a lot of valuable information. However, some people believe that the Internet creates many problems. From my point of view I think that the Internet brings us advantages as well as disadvantages. First of all, I think that the Internet brings us many benefits. People can have access to the latest news, weather, traffic, bid-and-asked quotations, etc. Another important benefit is that the Internet is a great means of communication. A few years ago it was rather difficult to imagine that it would be possible to communicate with people from all around the world. Students have the opportunity to speak to the professors from prestigious universities, ask their opinions and extend their range of interests. People have the opportunity to communicate with the people from other countries, find out their customs, traditions and even visit each other. I think that the Internet makes our world smaller and friendlier. We' ve got the chance to learn more about the world's history, our forefathers and gain more knowledge. From the other hand, many questions and difficulties arose with the appearance of the Internet. For example,......

...products as well as advertising earned by travel-oriented sites. The number of travelers who use the Internet for travel-related and other purposes tops 70 million, half of which consult the Internet to get information on destinations or to check prices and schedules (Travel Industry Association of America 1999). The number of travelers booking online has soared by more than 80 percent to 11 million in the last year (PhoCusWright 1999). Travel remains one of the most popular e-commerce categories, with 45 percent of online buyers saying they purchased travel online. This is outpaced only by books at 54 percent. According to a recent survey by BizRate.com (1999), 85% of the respondents intend to use the Internet exclusively or in conjunction with off-line resources to schedule airfare (90% of those planning to purchase travel online), hotel (52%), and car rental (42%) reservations for holiday travel. More than 75 percent of respondents indicated that discounts would motivate them to purchase future travel reservations online. Thirty-nine percent said earning frequent flyer miles or points also would be a strong influence. Cyveillance (1999) estimates that the overall universe of travel sites on the Web is 116,000. Based on analysis, it estimates that only approximately 6,500 travel sites (6%) are e-commerce enabled, i.e., offer the ability to execute transactions online. Internet start-up firms working as intermediaries and travel agencies will continue to fuel the......

The University of New South Wales School of Computer Science & Engineering Issues in Physical Xml Database Design

...THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES SCHOOL OF COMPUTER SCIENCE & ENGINEERING ISSUES IN PHYSICAL XML DATABASE DESIGN Damien Fisher (3065680) Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours) Supervisor: Dr. Raymond Wong Submission Date: October 29, 2003 Abstract Recent years have seen a surge in the popularity of XML, a markup language for representing semistructured data. Some of this popularity can be attributed to the success that the semi-structured data model has had in environments where the relational data model has been insufficiently expressive. It is thus natural to consider native XML databases, which are designed from the ground up to support XML data. Developing a native XML database introduces many challenges, some of which we consider here. The first major problem is that XML data is ordered, whereas relational databases operate on set-based data. We examine the ordering problem in great detail in this thesis, and show that while it imposes an unavoidable performance penalty on the database, this penalty can be reduced to an acceptable level in practice. We do this by making use of type information, which is often present in XML data, and by improving existing results in the literature. XML data is frequently queried using XPath, a de facto standard query language. The importance of XPath is increasing, due to its use as a primitive in the more powerful emerging query language, XQuery. It is widely believed that the one of the most promising approaches to......

...THE INTERNET BACKGROUND The Internet is the world’s largest computer network. It is a network of networks. The networks of various organizations as well as the computers of individuals are linked together via the internet. The Intern was originated by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the Department for Defense (DOD) to allow four universities doing research for the DOD to exchange information. At the time (1969), the network was called ARPANET. One of the results of how it was originated is that there is no central control of the Internet. The DOD wanted to ensure that in the network couldn’t be taken out by an attack on the control center. The internet now has hundreds of millions of users, but there is still no central control. SERVICES There are many services available on the internet. Some of them are: * E-mail * Newsgroups * Chat rooms * Instant messaging * The World Wide Web (often just called the Web) The web is the most widely used service on the internet which is why it is confused with being the Internet. However the web and the internet are not synonymous. The Web is just one of the services available on the Web. NAVIGATING THE INTERNET You can use a URL to find resources on the Internet. A URL is a Uniform Resource Locator. You enter it into the address bar of your Web Browser. It will look something like http://somestuff.com. If it is an address for a Web site will have www at the beginning like this: ......

The Internet

...located at the University of California at Los Angeles, SRI International, the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the University of Utah. By 1990, a network of networks, now known as the Internet, had grown from the four computers on the ARPANET to over 300,000 computers on many interconnected networks. As ARPANET grew to include more computers, researchers realized the need for each connected computer to conform the same set of rules. The Network Control Protocol (NCP) was developed as the first collection of rules for formatting, ordering, and error-checking data sent across a network. Vincent Cerf, who is often referred to as the Father of the Internet, along with his colleague Robert Kahn, developed the Transmission Control Protocol and the Internet Protocol (referred to by their combined acronym TCP/IP), which are still used today. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) includes rules that computers on a network use to establish and break connections. The Internet Protocol (IP) includes rules for routing individual data packets. The term Internet was first used in 1974 in an article written by Cerf and Kahn about the TCP protocol. The open architecture philosophy ensured that each network connected to the ARPANET could continue using its own protocols and data-transmission methods internally. Four key points characterized the open architecture philosophy: ¨ Independent networks should not require internal changes to be connected to the Internet. ¨......

Effects of Internet

...“The Internet is the world's largest library. It's just that all the books are on the floor”. This is a personal reflection on the impact of Internet technologies on higher education around the world over the last 13 years. It chronicles my observations of differences between perceptions and realities, of enthusiasm and disappointment, and the changes that have taken place in learning, teaching, and the structure of higher education during this period. Based on the work of others, this reflection also includes a prediction of the near term introduction of new instructional technologies and draws implications for higher education from these predictions and this history. The Context of Learning, always takes place in both a general context (language, country, geographical location) and a context created specifically for the learning process (classroom, technological infrastructure, course design). When learning materials cross national, language, and cultural borders, the issue of context becomes even clearer. Now, there is the increasing realization that materials produced in one country (or even hemisphere) must undergo extensive “localization” (and/or translation) in order to be useful. Perhaps no other influence has so affected the face of higher education than the World Wide Web. Nearly every aspect of learning that was once thought to be set in concrete, no longer is. The typical student no longer has to be white, between the ages 18-22, and want to be a doctor. ......

Usually consumer behavior has drawn upon theories developed in related fields of study of human behavior such as psychology, sociology, economics, behavioral economics, and anthropology, to develop a theoretical framework for the analysis of the behavior of consumers. It is very convenient and up-to-date to use information and telecommunication technologies for communication among individuals what improves the information flow within an organization and outside. At the same time there are a lot of challenges for all involved parts – industry and society. These challenges are principally related to adoption of the technologies in the country what directly impacts the consumer behavior. In the paper customer behavior in electronic environment have been analyzed, peculiarities of behavior caused by information and telecommunication technologies were funded out. The research conducted by the author showed that information technologies create dynamic behavior what involves different from traditional market interactions and exchanges.

...information security governance structure (e.g., defined responsibilities, policies, and procedures) while 18% are in the process of establishing one [Deloitte 2007]. The evolution of technology has had its impact on virtually every business or private aspect of our lives. From privacy to liability issues, the impact of technology on business is only limited to imagination. Unauthorized access to paper documents or phone conversations is still an information security concern, but the real challenge has become protecting the security of computer networks, especially when they are connected to the Internet. Most large organizations have their own local computer network, or intranet, that links their computers together to share resources and support the communications of employees and others with a legitimate need for access. Almost all of these networks are connected to the Internet and allow employees to go "online." Information technology security is controlling access to sensitive electronic information so only those with a legitimate need to access it are allowed to do so. This seemingly simple task has become a very complex process with systems that need to be continually updated and processes that need to constantly be reviewed. There are three main objectives for information technology security: confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data to the organization. Confidentiality is protecting access to sensitive data from those who don't have a legitimate......

The result will be new ways of making decisions, backed by the availability of information. The option of being online and traceable at all times has also led to the emergence of a new generation of consumers, who demand new products and services based on ubiquity and interconnection. These shifts in production and consumption patterns are changing the relations between all the agents in the system. There is a whole host of new opportunities to design and offer new products and services and make more efficient use of existing assets, creating a fertile ground for entrepreneurs. The dynamic of change of the technologies involved in the Internet of Everything is particularly interesting. In many fields, successful new solutions will turn their backs on traditional models of evolution, based on standards set out by large corporations or supranational bodies. Instead, they will consist of “cheap hacks” promoted by entrepreneurs who are capable of identifying efficient problem-solving alternatives and distributing them efficiently thanks to permanent and ubiquitous connectivity, enabling......

Instructional Design Plan: Introduction to Internet Explorer

...[pic] ACME Global Transportation Company Corporate Training Department Instructional Design Plan: Introduction to Internet Explorer Instructional Designer: James Smith Scenario The accounting division of ACME Global Transportation has recently implemented an Intranet that is to be used by the supervisory staff to access the new web based version of the corporate Human Resource Management System (HRMS). The new system is being phased in over a 90-day period. The supervisors are tasked with entering on-line, on a weekly basis, the regular and over-time hours worked by their staff. They are also supposed to print out a report of the hours that they have entered, and submit this to the manager of the department in which they work. They also have the option of sending the report to the manager via e-mail. The HRMS system is accessed via the corporate standard browser, Internet Explorer (IE). Thirty days into the implementation of the new HRMS package, the payroll manager has complained to the I/T director that the hours worked by staff are not being accurately captured. The department managers have also complained that they are not getting their payroll reports on a timely basis from their supervisors. A meeting was held to discuss the problems with the new version of the HRMS system. In attendance was the I/T team responsible for the HRMS project as well as the department......

...strong demand for actuaries and financial analysts and the high salaries currently on offer. * Why study at UCT? UCT was the first University in Africa to set up a course to produce qualified actuaries. The old adage that success breeds success is clearly appropriate. Our strong past record of success at producing qualified actuaries has allowed the department to attract the best students and staff with relevant professional qualifications and experience. UCT has produced more qualified actuaries than any other university in Africa and our analysis of performance in the professional examinations indicates that our graduates are more likely to qualify than those from other courses in South Africa. Students within the actuarial program are often able to obtain bursaries from employers especially after they establish a good track record in our examinations. We recommend that students apply for financial aid (and accommodation) well in advance of the closing dates even if they are not sure that they will need it. * Students from previously disadvantaged communities At present the overwhelming majority of actuaries and financial analysts are white males. However, the Actuarial Programme is producing increasing numbers of female and non-white graduates. We expect this to continue due to the quality of the students we attract, the design of the programme and the financial support of the insurance industry. In addition we are hosting an Actuarial Society of......
