- Subject notes
Learning And Teaching Methods
The subject is delivered through a combination of lectures and workshops (combination of tutorial and individual/group work in a computer lab). Students get hands-on experience by applying principles taught in lectures in the workshops through discussions and by doing. Students also develop their presentation skills by presenting at least two prototypes and the final version of the web application during the different stages of the incremental development and design process.
Indicative Key Learning Resources
Students have access to lecture notes, lecture slides, workshops and supportive tools and frameworks to model, design and develop Web applications. The subject LMS site also contains links to recommended resources for modelling, programming, and advanced problems for students who want to enrich their learning experience.
Careers / Industry Links
As an initial modelling and design subject, the modelling and design approach taught in this subject can be considered an introduction to more complex Software Engineering (SE) principles taught in more advanced SE subjects at the graduate level. Examples of companies/organisations which have been involved in the delivery of the subject (through guest lectures etc.) are 99designs (web-based logo design) and NICTA (web-based protein visualisation).
