Internet Computing

Module code: CO1097

Module co-ordinator: Fer-Jan de Vries

The rapid growth of the Internet has affected all areas of life including how students of all disciplines obtain and present data. One of the easiest ways of doing this is via the web: an arts student may want to produce an on-line bibliography or website of literary resources, while a science student may want to make various data sets available on the web.

In this module you will learn how to collect data by searching the web and how to create and maintain a website for disseminating such information. We will cover the structure of the internet and the web, the construction and maintenance of a website and issues pertaining to the security of websites.
