I am planning a course to be taught at Oxford uni. The topic is
User generated content and web 2.0: Opportunities and threats, A strategic viewpoint for decision makers
The target audience is corporate/decision makers. The proposed outline is as below. What do you think of this outline? Should I be adding something more? Many thanks for your feedback.
According to Nielsen/Netratings (Aug 200) , user-generated content sites, platforms for photo sharing, video sharing and blogging, comprised five out of the top 10 fastest growing Web brands in July 2006.
With the rise of MySpace ,YouTube and other Web 2.0 sites, traditional value chains are facing disruption. This disruption causes both threats and opportunities.

Any thing else?
