Strategic Business Studies Prelim updates the first edition for the inclusion of QR codes and bespoke website, and some very minor content updates from the first edition.

Not an isolated course

The way that the preliminary course is structured intersects at many points with the framework and content of the HSC course. This text addresses the preliminary material and provides the overall context and linkages to the HSC content. Throughout the text, content which recurs in the HSC course is clearly marked. This enables students to develop an understanding and vocabulary to equip them to engage more efficiently with the HSC course in year 12.

QR code enabled with videos, explanations and more

One of the key features of Strategic Business Prelminary is the way QR codes appear in the printed text which provide access to a range of additional carefully selected or constructive resources. In some cases, the QR code is linked to appropriate video or other content on the interenet, or it may link to narrated explanations of the content or graphics in the text. In the case of statistical graphs and data, the QR codes link to updated graphs and statistics. In the business studies context, a range of outstanding materials have been provided by government and government institutions, which have therefore been leveraged in the text to make it easier for location and usage by teachers and students. A complete list of the QR codes for each chapter appears in the web page for the chapter on the bus spoke website.

Digital resources made easy to access and use

The bespoke website approach enables very easy access to content by teachers and students. Using the code in the front of the textbook, students and teachers have a one time authentication process and thereafter do not need to login with passwords or usernames, which applies both to mobile devices as well as to their computers. It is suggested that teachers and students add a bookmark for the bespoke website for the book to their bookmarks bar in their browser and also to the home screen on their mobile device or phone. This means that when the QR codes are used, the target resource is opened without any requirement for authentication or passwords.
