Hi. I’m Dr. Anthony Chow, and welcome to Unit 5. I’m on the campus of UNCG in Greensboro, North Carolina in the Service Operations Center, which is part of Information Technology Services. Behind me is a service desk analyst hard at work supporting UNCG face-to-face and online students. And on the big screen on the back wall you’ll see real time data analytics monitoring the technology infrastructure across campus.

It’s hard to believe but the web has already had a long and storied history and changed quite a bit in the past 20 years. How did it start? And where is it going? What are some of the most prominent web design tools and emerging trends? And how has the relationship between web design and usability evolved? This unit will provide some context and explore answers to these questions in two sections.

  • Section 1 will explore the underpinning and brief history of the web all the way to where we are now.
  • Section 2 will explore what is hot now in terms of trends and website design and also look at the emerging technologies that most likely will shape it in the future.

Spiro, what are you guys doing over there?
