CS Web Projects
1. News & Events
The school holds numerous events, both as part of its teaching and as
social and public relations exercises. These events require co-ordination
of people, rooms and equipment. They also need to be recorded and those
records reflected on the web. There are also news items, either as a
result of events or other activity that need to be recorded and reported.
This project will develop a framework to allow news and events to be
created, resourced and recorded, with links to the main university news
and events system, school news feed, events calendar and intranet system.
2. Web-based Student Project Gallery
Student projects deliver a wide variety of research, applications and
reports from both individual and group efforts. This information should be
captured and reflected on the web (c.f. Sourceforge).
This project will create a framework that will allow the submission of
project end-products - a mixture of documentation and applications,
Optionally it should provide tools to assist in the development and
co-ordination of projects
3. Seminars - enhanced iCal
Seminars are an important part of how the school gains and shares
knowledge of current research. School seminars usually are given by an
invited speaker but research group also hold seminars where group members
or visitors will talk. Currently the main school seminar series is run off
an ical feed
This project will develop a framework that will allow different seminar
series to exist with ical publishing of event details, controlled access
to allow selected users to create new seminars, and enhanced web hosting
for seminar resources (photos, speakers slides, discussions, etc).
4. Virtual Open Day / School Tour
The school holds a number of open days every year for prospective
students. these consist of talks, tours of facilities, demonstrations of
on-going research and question and answer sessions.
This project will look at capturing the essence of these activities and
packaging them for interaction on the web. It will require mixed media
capture, edit and presentation skills.
5. Social Bookmarking for Institutions
Web sites like del.icio.us and Digg allow users to store and share
resources that they encounter that might be useful either to themselves or
others intersted in the same subject.
This project will develop a system which allows users inside an
institution to store, share and tag both public and private resources, for
personal or group use and public dissemination. It will also allow users
to use their bookmarks in their writing (cf Zotero, citeulike, bibtex
