This module will introduce students to modern JavaScript development frameworks. Students will be introduced to the concepts of the frameworks and understand the need to develop web applications using these frameworks. Students will develop responsive web applications that will be cloud hosted and interact with data services.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;


Design and create responsive web pages using modern JavaScript frameworks


Describe the different development tools such as CLI, Git and libraries


Develop operations to interact with data services


Build a web application on a cloud service

Teaching and Learning Strategies

A practical approach to teaching and learning will be used. Problem-based learning will be used where possible. The one hour lecture will be used to introduce core concepts. The lab practicals will be used to understand key concepts by developing web applications. Flipped learning will be employed as required. Screencasting by students of project work will be used to develop presentation skills.

Virtual Machines will be used to allow flexibility and enhance learning.

Module Assessment Strategies

60% continuous assessment. Students have to complete lab work and a number of formative and summative quizzes throughout the module. The summative quizzes will make up 20% of the final mark. These in-class quizzes will be carried out in weeks 4 and 8. Students will complete a project worth 40% and as part of this will be required to peer review and provide feedback to each other. This project will have staged submissions throughout the semester. This project will be aligned with a project students complete in the Cloud Computing module potentially enabling cross-module assessment.

40% end of term practical exam.

Repeat Assessments

Repeat exam to cover all learning outcomes.
