Introduction to Web 2.0 technologies

when 3 July 2013 - 24 July 2013
duration 3 weeks
credits 9.9 ECTS

This course, designed for non-technologists, will introduce students to the terminology and some of the software tools that support content creation in the Web 2.0 world, such as wikis, blogs, RSS and social networking sites. The importance of being web-2.0-literate is quickly approaching a value similar to that of being personal computer savvy; the aim of the course is to prepare students to be to be functional contributors in this realm today, and to be relevant and active producers ”on the leading curve” for tomorrow. A prevailing aim of the course is to develop within each student a sense of the applicability as well as the benefits and drawbacks of employing these technologies. Course offered by Department of Business Administration.
