Web Technologies

via openHPI


WWW, the world wide web or shortly the web - really nothing more than an information service on the Internet – has changed our world by creating a whole new digital world that is closely intertwined with our real world, making reality what was previously unimaginable: communication across the world in seconds, watching movies on a smartphone, playing games or looking at photos with remote partners in distant continents, shopping or banking from your couch … In our MOOC on web technologies you will learn how it all works.

We start off by introducing the underlying technologies of the web: URI, HTTP, HTML, CSS and XML. If this sounds cryptic, rest assured that you will soon become familiar with what it’s all about. We will then focus on web services and web programming technologies along with their practical application. And we will look at how search engines – our fast and reliable signposts in the digital world – actually work to find contents and services on the web. The course concludes with a look at cloud computing and how it is changing the way we will access computing power in the future.

  • Panos Gr completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    The content was very engaging and interesting throughout the course, especially for a newbee to web development like me. Only thing I didn't quite enjoy was the instructors way of teaching. His english was a bit rough (his native language is German)...
