Availability

Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Syllabus

The rise of the web as a global communication platform has brought with it vast changes in how users can access and interpret information about the world in which we live. In this unit, students will discover how to create novel interactive interfaces using dynamic data retrieved through web-based systems. They will learn about relevant concepts, theories and frameworks, and consider how these can inform the design and development of data-driven applications which aim to solve real-world design problems.

Learning Outcomes

After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Identify and analyse appropriate concepts, theories and frameworks of data driven applications;

2. Adapt and apply a range of approaches and techniques to produce novel interactive applications using one or more dynamic application programming interfaces (APIs); and

3. Work collaboratively as part of a group to produce and evaluate a novel and engaging interactive application.

Contact Hours

Three hours of flexible interactive workshops, consisting of lectures, practical exercises, reports and seminars per week.
