Leader: J Blain
Caulfield Second semester 2005 (Day)
Synopsis: The unit will examine three main areas: the basic technologies of the internet, the world-wide web and multimedia systems; the way in which these technologies have been applied in practice to date; and the development processes required to build systems which make use of the internet and multimedia technologies. The emphasis throughout the subject will be on providing a broad overview of topics, rather than examining any one topic in great depth. There will be a strong emphasis on practical demonstration of the concepts being studied, and extensive use will be made of case studies to highlight aspects of theory.
