WWW applications

Individual course

Max amount of FITech students: 10

Persons without a valid study right at a Finnish university or university of applied sciences have preference to this course. Students have to confirm their participation by attending the first lecture.

The course deals with emerging/experimental web technologies. The actual topics addressed vary from year to year. In previous years, both the presentation and project work are combined together as a single project which is done in groups of three students.

The topics include most important HTML5 technologies, such as Canvas, WebGL, WebSockets, Web Workers, Geolocation, local storage, and CORS.

Students will learn how to search scientific/technical information and effectively communicate their findings to the public in the form of a written report and a short presentation. In addition, they will learn how to work as part of a group that plans, schedules, executes, and documents a small web development project.

Assessment methods and criteria

The course grade is based on the final report and an oral presentation of the project work.


Lectures and workshop 28 h, group work 102 h (= 130 h in total).

Lectures are held online on Tuesdays at 16:15-18.
