Fundamentals of Creating an eCommerce Site (Micro-credential)

ECOM 1980

This course is for the student who wishes to create an ecommerce site but has no prior experience in doing so. Using Shopify’s ecommerce platform, students engage in a step-by-step simulation that will result in a “ready-to-go live” virtual storefront. Students will be able to operate their own ecommerce site whenever they are ready to launch it. The learning process will include reading some contextual/theoretical background and engaging in self-scoring quizzes prior to spending most of course time constructing then simulating and operation of a Shopify-based ecommerce website.
