Mode of delivery

This is an on-campus course with a supporting Web site: http://www.ict.griffith.edu.au/teaching/2503ICT/





We try to make this an interesting and practical course.

But designing and implementing Web applications is difficult.

It is thus necessary to work hard throughout the semester.
