Tuesdays & Thursdays 9:30-10:45 AM
This advanced information organization course focuses on understanding and using the Web as a platform for building information systems. Students will learn how the Web has been designed to be used as a service platform, a data publishing platform, and an application platform. Specific topics to be covered include: resources and representations, URIs, HTTP, MIME types, REST, microdata, microformats, the Semantic Web, Linked Data, and HTML5. Although the course will involve some programming, the focus will not be on programming Web sites but on understanding and applying the organizational principles of the Web. Students will develop a deep understanding of information architecture, not at the level of individual Web sites, but of the Web as a whole.
The university facilitates the implementation of reasonable accommodations, including resources and services, for students with disabilities, chronic medical conditions, a temporary disability or pregnancy complications resulting in barriers to fully accessing courses, programs and activities.
