We are increasingly reliant on Internet-based services for a variety of routine tasks, for example, searching: Google; e-commerce: Amazon; e-government: Fife Council; travel: Network Rail timetable; management of educational processes: MMS. This module provides insight into the technologies and concepts that are used in the design, construction and deployment of such services. The main practical focus will be on the design and use of databases and advanced authoring, leading to an understanding of their combined use in the production of dynamic websites. This will be complemented by a conceptual stream drawn from areas within Electronic Commerce. No more than 50% of the material in this module will involve working directly with software, to ensure that the module is amenable to home study.
