About this courseSkip About this course
The aim of this course is to present the mathematical/logic basis underpinning automatic elaboration of Information and to introduce computing and telecommunications technologies. Shannon’s Information theory is first introduced as well as the basic concepts behind computer systems organisation, operating systems and Graphical User Interfaces. Learners then explore procedural programming and Object Oriented programming as major approaches to coding. Computer networks and transmission systems are then presented, focusing on telematic networks at the local, geographic and Internet level. The World Wide Web is described with the introduction of the HTTP protocol and its application in web services: HTML and CSS. Content Management Systems like Wiki and Wordpress are described in detail and the course concludes with Social Networks and an overview of the future of the Internet.
