Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

COSC1519 / COSC1321 Introduction to Programming

and COSC1078  Introduction to Information Technology


Course Description

The course introduces you to the basic concepts of the World Wide Web, and the principles and tools that are used to develop Web applications. The course will provide an overview of Internet technology and will introduce you to current Web protocols, client side and server side programming, communication and design.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

Program Learning Outcomes

This course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:

  • PLO1 - Enabling Knowledge:  You will gain skills as you apply knowledge effectively in diverse contexts.
  • PLO2 - Critical Analysis:  You will learn to accurately and objectively examine and consider computer science and information technology (IT) topics, evidence, or situations, in particular to: analyse and model requirements and constraints for the purpose of designing and implementing software artefacts and IT systems
  • PLO3 - Problem Solving:  Your capability to analyse problems and synthesise suitable solutions will be extended as you learn to: design and implement software solutions that accommodate specified requirements and constraints, based on analysis or modelling or requirements specification.
  • PLO4 - Communication: You will learn to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences through a range of modes and media, in particular to: present a clear, coherent and independent exposition of software applications, alternative IT solutions, and decision recommendations to both IT and non-IT personnel via technical reports of professional standard and technical presentations.


Upon successful completion of this course you should be able to:

CLO1:understand modern languages, constructs used on the Web (such as HTML5, Advanced CSS, JavaScript (frameworks), and PHP)

CLO2: explain the functions of clients and servers on the Web, and describe the strengths and weaknesses of the client-server internet approaches to web design and implementation

CLO3: program, access, and manipulate data through the adoption of accepted standards, mark-up languages, client-side programming, and server-side programming

CLO4: design and implement an interactive web site(s) with regard to issues of usability, accessibility and internationalisation

CLO5: design and implement a client-server internet application that accommodates specific requirements and constraints, based on analysis, modelling or requirements specification


Overview of Learning Activities

 The learning activities may include: review of pre-recorded lectures, completion of preparation activities, lectorials, laboratory-based activities, webinars, post-lecture exercises, assignment and project work, and self-study. 

Canvas: All learning materials will be available on Canvas including lecture notes, tutorial and lab exercises, example source code and recorded lectures. Students will also participate in discussion with staff and other students via the online discussion board.

Attendance:
While a minimum attendance standard is not compulsory, attendance is correlated with success in this course.


Overview of Learning Resources

You will make extensive use of computer laboratories and relevant software provided by the School. You will be able to access course information and learning materials through Canvas. Lists of relevant reference texts, resources in the library and freely accessible Internet sites will be provided.

Use the RMIT Bookshop’s textbook list search page to find any recommended textbook(s).


Overview of Assessment

The assessment for this course comprises practical project work and lab tests.

The project work involves the analysis, design and development of a modern Web-based solution to a particular problem/business domain, justified through written and/or verbal communication of your decisions contributing to your solution.

The assessment tasks are in two schedules: A and B. You will be advised at the start of the teaching period which of the two schedules apply for any given teaching period and location.  

This course has no hurdle requirements.
