This course focuses on exploring several FinTech products and using the skills and knowledge gained to make judgements and recommendations. Learners will also learn how FinTech products are disrupting traditional banking and personal finance systems.
By the end of this course, learners will be able to:
- Recall a type of FinTech that they have used or seen used
- Match FinTech concepts with the correct description
- Explain FinTech in their own words
- Evaluate three common FinTech applications
- Convince others on why they should use a particular FinTech
- Explain the purpose of taxation
- Recall the purpose of three common FinTech applications
- Recall the correct rate of GST in Australia
- Recall the costs associated with one common FinTech application
This course consists of three key areas:
- Basic FinTech concepts
- FinTech disruption in Australia
- Benefits and purposes of FinTech
We start with the basics of FinTech and then rapidly move to take a closer look at some of the FinTechs disrupting the Australian financial landscape before making recommendations to others on FinTech that they should consider using.
