  • Course Outline
  • Course Rules
    Attendance. Attendance is mandatory. University regulations regarding this matter will be strictly enforced.
    Academic Honesty: Individual work must be each student’s own work. Plagiarism or cheating will result in official University disciplinary review.
    Missed Exams: There are no makeup exams, and project deadlines are very hard.
    Etiquette: Cell phones must be turned off. Don’t come late. If you must go out during the lecture don’t let us notice.
    Ritaj: We only communicate through Ritaj. I assume you check it several times a day.
  • Good and bad stories last year
    Most students told me that they under-estimated the huge amount of efforts required in this course, many project and skills to learn!
    The course assumes knowledge about database systems, XML, and HTML; if not, you should learn it yourself quickly.
    Some students told me that I assume a high motivation and huger to learn know technologies otherwise difficult to pass the course.
    Some students wrote scientific articles in international conferences during the previous courses.
    Almost half of the students expressed their interest to conduct their thesis on this topic (Rami, Rana, Hanya, Hiba, Yahya, Mohammad, and others).
    Most students told me that the relations among them was strengthen after this course. Well, this is because they had to work too days and nights on projects! We all work as a family and help each other.
    The final average of the class was 83%.
     I promise you to: learn modern technologies, enjoy every minute, private teaching, and get high mark; but promise be very hard work.
