Induction 2011 – Web Technologies

Induction Day 2011
Induction Day 2011

This week I had the opportunity to attend the Induction Day for the MA DH, MA DCS and MA DAM students. It was a great opportunity to meet this year’s students and talk to them about their interests and the different optional modules on offer.

In the last few weeks, Raffaele Viglianti and I have been busy preparing the arrival of a new optional module, Web Technologies, which we are very excited about. On this module, we aim to teach students to develop and design a website not only using some of the most important technologies for the web (XHTML, CSS and JavaScript), but also applying the principles of user-centred design, accessibility and information architecture.

With this new module we are hoping students can gain an understanding and insight into web technologies and learn to present content and information on the web.
