Course content

The evolution of web-based technologies has now led to what is known as 'Web 2.0': a semantically enriched information source with advanced potential to provide specialised software applications 'on the fly'. A plethora of standard PC-based applications is now appearing online (calendar and diary tools, text editors, and spreadsheets, among others) that can be used in a distributed collaborative setting. Developing such applications is particularly challenging, partly due to the wide background required but also the rapid emergence of new technologies. This MSc will equip you with a sound understanding of the area and its emerging trends, while at the same time providing a very hands-on approach to current technologies.
