Evaluation:

The teaching is conducted through theoretical and practical classes, because many of the contents have a operational application component. The classes consist of an initial part, with an exhibition and theoretical component. In addition the students carry out practical exercises, as autonomous as possible, through practical sheets available in the online reserved area of the discipline. Two tests are performed online, through the corresponding functionality in the Agon web application. In addition students will have to perform autonomously, a pratical work, which consists in developing a Web application, using HTML, PHP and MySQL. This work has an initial presentation in the course of lessons and a final presentation, after the completion of classes. The students who do not realize the continuous assessment, previously presented, will have to perform a written test and an oral presentation about the whole matter.
