Overview

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.

by Panos 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) so some things didn't quite make sense or I couldn't hear what he was saying.

Another thing is that he mostly read out some notes that were already offered on the course which means that he didn't explain the concept in more detail than that which the course already provided (for the majority of lessons).

The platform is also going through some improvements, so the provider wasn't perfectly responsive throughout, though that's understandable.

Overall, the knowledge one gets from this class and the certificate of completion for free are definitely two things that boost the class to a 5-star experience
