CS 177 - Web 2.0: Blogs, Wikis, Maps and Apps (2)

As Tim Berners-Lee originally conceived the World-Wide Web, it should be user oriented and driven. With Web 2.0, it is finally getting there. With this course you should be able to use and set up your own Web 2.0 facilities, such as blogs (weblogs), wikis (information communities), and combinations such as RSS, mashups, tagging, and social networking; appreciate and evaluate the range of modern interactive applications on the World Wide Web; find and explore innovative interactive sites; and imagine the advances coming on the Web. Lecture and lab combined. No programming experience required.
