Fun with the live web

Interesting teaching session yesterday - taught by my PhD student, Rudolf, for Internet Technologies, about the dynamic/live web. Most of the stuff we teach is based around the static model of web publishing, but its important to show students how the live on-the-fly web works too - and they have the opportunity to do further programming in the next term if they want to follow it up.

In the lab, everyone was blogging away like pros, and Rudolf got them to tag the entries with the course code, so they were easily visible to all. I wonder how many students will keep up their blogging habit now they have been shown how easy it is?
