Hypertext/Hypermedia: The Web Was Not the Beginning and the Web Is Not the EndOffered this year and most years
Hypertext/Hypermedia systems -- first designed in the 1960s -- link information and people. Developed in the late 1980s, the Web was the first global hypermedia system; 30+ years later, it represents a small part of past visions. Students will identify still-uncommon features by exploring/using systems from the 1960s onwards. They will read papers for class discussion. They will study architecture and design topics such as annotating, note taking, searching, networking, collaboration, permanence, and social impact. Web programming projects, using TypeScript/MERN stack, will culminate in group projects to create their own hypertext/hypermedia systems.
