    • Description:
      Since its inception the World Wide Web has changed the ways people work, play, communicate, collaborate, and educate. There is, however, a growing realization among researchers across a number of disciplines that without fundamental understanding of the current, evolving and potential Web, we may be missing or delaying opportunities for new and revolutionary capabilities. This course attempts to provide the foundations of that understanding, exploring the fundamentals of the World Wide Web's function including the HTTP protocol, key algorithms that make the Web function, future trends, and social issues with respect to Web use and effect.
