Aims and objectives

This unit deals with what is often relegated to a secondary place - the systematic consideration of the end users in this burgeoning new communications environment. The subject focuses on the need to understand user perspectives rather than technology perspectives, or on the complexities of the demand side of the equation rather than the supply side.
