Learning outcomes 

After completing the course the student is able to:


  • Analyse issues related to the development web and perhaps even to predict the potential future of the web;
  • Apply these for web design, organisational purposes and entrepreneurial activities.


The course will help the student to recognise and reflect on on-going and potential future web development trends. It will build upon understanding of the contemporary web, its conceptual background, and the changes that lead to the web we see today. The ultimate goal for the course is to foresee the potential future of the web in the upcoming five years. Thus, the name of the course is The Next Generation of the Web.
