ALL MODULE INFORMATION WILL BE IN CANVAS FROM AUTUMN 2017.

PDMU9L7 is a half module in Advanced IT skills which aims to develop good communication skills through effective design of web pages using HTML and CSS, with an appreciation of usability and accessibility issues. In addition, construction of simple databases using Microsoft Access is covered.

This module runs in Autumn semester as a stream of CSCU9B1, amd as part of the summer academic programme. It is not currently planned to run in the evening again, or in Spring. It is delivered in ten practical sessions (workshops) and ten lectures. In semester, the usual attendance pattern for each student is one two-hour workshop per week, but there will be a number of timetabled sessions each week, so a faster pace is possible. For the summer academic programme the module runs as a compressed two-week course with one workshop each day. You can find out more about what the module covers by looking at the syllabus.
