Description of module content:

In this module you will learn how do design and implement dynamic web sites, from the basics to modern frameworks and current professional practice.
Covered topics are:
* General client-side technologies: HTML, CSS, JavaScript
* Client-side frameworks: Bootstrap, jQuery, jQuery-Mobile
* A general overview of server-side development frameworks (such as PHP and ASP.NET) as well as how HTTP connects everything together
* Data handling/persistence mechanisms: Databases, Entity Framework, Sessions, JSON
* In-depth knowledge of ASP.NET MVC and related technologies (e.g. Razor, Linq). We will be using the framework with C#
In doing so you will gain a good understanding of and ability to critically evaluate and select an appropriate framework for various kinds of web applications.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to
LO1: Use frameworks and code to produce aesthetically appealing websites and to manipulate the UI.
LO2: Program the server-side functionality of a website.
LO3: Demonstrate a thorough understanding of major web technologies.
LO4: Describe and critically evaluate web-related frameworks
LO5: Critically assess different database server technologies and Implement database connectivity in web applications.

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to learning outcomes
Students will be expected to research, collate and provide a critical evaluation of much of the theory behind this subject. Teaching will concentrate on the critical analysis of that information and on practical implementation. Students are expected to spend a large portion of their time doing comprehensive reading and developing practical skills. Practical materials are well organised and selected for enhancing students’ understanding of the theories/principles covered. The classes in the first half of the module focus on the client-side and help prepare the student to complete the basic practical implementation and report that comprises Coursework 1 and addresses LO1. The second coursework address all LOs.

Formative Assessment:
Assessment (formative and summative)
The three-hour lab sessions essentially provide formative feedback as students complete a series of exercises through to working components of systems.

Summative Assessment:
Summative Assessment is 100% coursework. Coursework 1 will be a practical exercise and report and will address LO1. Coursework 2 will be a practical exercise and report and will address all LOs, by creating a fully working prototype website and prompting the student to reflect critically both on what they have created and on describing and criticality evaluating various frameworks for web development.
