The following resources come from the 2009/10 BSc in Internet Technology and E-Commerce (course number 2ELE0076) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes.

The objectives of this module are to demonstrate within an Internet and e-Commerce Technology environment:
• Develop their professional skills in project planning and time management.
• Enhance their problem-solving and independent learning abilities.
• Deploy technology effectively to solve given Internet and e-Commerce Technology problems.
Students will be provided with images of Virtual PC containing a server operating system and a client. They are then required to work in a small group to configure and setup the client server environment to provide hosting services (web and media hosting). They will also be required to produce simple web pages and media clips to be uploaded to the server. Students will need to test their setup and will be required to meet strict requirements (e.g. providing multi-user hosting solutions). The project provides students with an awareness of best practices in setting up a web and media hosting service.

  • 2. Mini Project – ITC Web and Media Hosting Services Section 1. Project Introduction 1. Learning Outcomes assessed (as taken from the DMD) All Learning Outcomes specified in the Definitive Module Documentation are assessed as part of this miniproject, the specific Learning Outcomes are: Knowledge and Understanding • Be able to analyse and breakdown problem tasks into manageable steps. • Integrate previous and concurrent learning and to use it to solve technology-based problems. • Be able to describe the project life-cycle appropriately. • Be able to select appropriate Internet and e-Commerce Technology and techniques for a given situation. Skills and Attributes • Produce a solution to a defined Internet and e-Commerce Technology problem. • Carry out a simple critical evaluation of their solution. • Demonstrate an ability to work effectively in a teams, small groups and individually. • Demonstrate an ability to manage time and resources effectively. 2. Project Title: Web & Media Hosting Services 3. Project Objectives: (technical, specific to this project) Demonstrate within a Internet and e-Commerce Technology environment: • Develop their professional skills in project planning and time management. • Enhance their problem-solving and independent learning abilities. • Deploy technology effectively to solve given Internet and e-Commerce Technology problems. 4. Project Summary: (50 words max) Students will be provided with images of Virtual PC containing a server operating system and a client. They are then required to work in a small group to configure and setup the client server environment to provide hosting services (web and media hosting). They will also be required to produce simple web pages and media clips to be uploaded to the server. Students will need to test their setup and will be required to meet strict requirements (e.g. providing multi-user hosting solutions). The project provides students with an awareness of best practices in setting up a web and media hosting service. 5. Introductory Lecture (2hrs) Content: • Introduction to Client-Server Architectures and Virtual PC • Use of Internet Information Services and Windows Media Services • Content management strategies. • Secure Socket Layers 6. Preparation Session (3hrs): i. An introduction to the use of virtual PC. ii. Creating simple web and media content, in preparation for the actual day iii. Familiarisation with Internet Information Services and Windows Media Services. 7. Day 1 Expected Outcomes for the day: Students work individually in configuring the client-server environment via Virtual PC. They will need to ensure that the server is able to provide hosting services for web and media. Simple web pages and media will need to be created and uploaded to the server. Assessment criteria; the way in which the work has been planned and managed, the configuration of the server, contents created, and served. Key Tasks: Page 2 of 6
