Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2018-19

• To successfully complete this course the student has to previously complete those courses:


20002 - Fundamentals of Programming I

20007 - Fundamentals of Programming II


• Context of the subject in the Degree.

This course is located at the end of the training period for undergraduates. It aims to provide students new perspectives of applying their knowledge to the world of work by providing an updated "state of the art" of multimedia services in the knowledge society.

The course consists of two parts:
Theory: where the great questions of the media and the Internet will be analyzed and
Practice: of hands-on caracter where the basics of web programming in PHP will be learned and a the student will do a project to apply what they have learned in theory.
