- Search Engine
- Search engine is the most prevalent method of finding information today. To understand how search engines work and to gain insights on how they may be enhanced, the course examines basic information retrieval (IR) theory and discusses how IR theory may be applied to practice. After learning about such topics as IR models, automatic classification, clustering, Web IR, and fusion IR, students will explore how these IR technology can be employed in working IR systems such as Web search engines to improve the search results.
- Web Programming
- Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is one of the most popular mechanism for creating dynamic and interactive Web content. Perl is a programming language that is not only well suited for CGI tasks but also relatively easy to learn. For anyone with a need to create Web contents, and especially for an information technology professional, Perl/CGI skill can be an indispensable tool in his or her daily tasks. This course introduces basic skills needed for creating dynamic and interactive Web contents. Students will learn basics of CGI and Perl programming to process user input from HTML forms and create dynamic and interactive Web sites with a range of information processing capabilities.
- Internet Technology
- To become a skilled and informed user of the Internet, it is important to understand what the Internet is and how it works. This course introduces an overview of the Internet with a focus on internet technology, By studying the technology underlying the Internet and examining various internet applications, students will develop a knowledge base of the internet technology and gain hands-on experience with common Internet applications.
- Database Design
- A database is an organized collection of related data. In modern organizations databases are used to support a wide-range of operations. Some common operations involve personnel management, inventory control, customer tracking, and marketing. For instance, organizations such as libraries use database to keep track of their holdings and patron information while analyzing circulation data and customer profile to assess consumer demands and service quality.
- S534 (L641): Information Retrieval: Theory and Practice
- The main objective of S534 is to introduce students to hands-on Information Retrieval (IR) research. Students will learn basic IR theory, examine cutting-edge IR research, and put together a research proposal that will serve as a blueprint for conducting TREC experiments.
- In addition to learning about IR in general, students will learn how to design a research project, develop insights into how theory can be applied in practice, and gain hands-on experiences with an experimental IR system called WIDIT.
- S534 is designed to prepare students to participate in TREC, which will involve system implementation, execution of retrieval experiments, and analysis of the experimental results.
- S517 (L548): Web Programming
- The main focus of this course is on learning basic programming skills for information management on the Web. In order to do so, we will study the basics of Perl/CGI Programming with which to design and implement functional Web-based information systems.
- S511 (L546): Database Design
- The main focus of this course is on learning basic database theories and principles as well as practical design and implementation skills to create user-centered database management applications.
- S603: Perl/CGI Workshop
- The main focus of this workshop is on learning how to create dynamic and interactive Web contents by using Perl CGI scripts. Students will learn basics of CGI and Perl programming to process user input from HTML forms to create simple Web-based information management applications.
- INLS181: Internet Applications
School of Information and Library Science, UNC-CH
- The main focus of this course is on learning how to use the Internet skillfully and wisely. In order to do so, we will examine how the Internet works, explore various Internet applications, and consider the impact of the Internet on society.
