Introduction

M1 explain the role of web architecture in website communications On the internet, there are many websites which let you share information with other users. This is where web 2.0 comes in. While many people may think that web 2.0 is a newer version of the World Wide Web, It is actually just a change in the way that developers use the web. Web 2.0 refers to design that is made to help interactivity, information sharing and communication. It includes web communities such as social network sites like facebook, video/photo sharing websites and blogs and wikis. There are many factors which all successful web 2.0 websites share. These include, being easy and fun to use, being affordable, they have a clear purpose and people can add and edit their own information. ...read more.

In the style as SaaS (Software as a Service), a company can directly access these applications via a terminal connected to the internet. Online application Web application is an application that is accessed over a network such as the Internet or an intranet. The term may also mean a computer software application that is hosted in a browser- controlled environment (e.g. a Java applet) or coded in a browser- supported language (such as JavaScript, combined with a browser- rendered markup language like HTML) and reliant on a common web browser to render the application executable.

Conclusion

The fact that people are able to access and change information means that the information on the website is not always legitimate. Feeds A web feed (or news feed) is a data format used for providing users with frequently updated content. Content distributors syndicate a web feed, thereby allowing users to subscribe to it. Making a collection of web feeds accessible in one spot is known as aggregation, which is performed by an aggregator. A web feed is also sometimes referred to as a syndicated feed. RSS feeds are a quick and easy way to get the news that matters most to you as soon as it is published (RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary). These feeds contain headlines, links and descriptions and are updated as the website is updated with new stories. ?? ?? ?? ??

Response to the question

This document provides various examples of web 2.0 based websites but fails to answer the assignment brief i.e. website architecture.
The writer neglects describing the fundamental model of a website in terms of server-side and client-side technologies, the processes involved and the associated hardware. Furthermore, the writer does not mention web content management systems, which is expected considering that the writer places an incredible amount of emphasis on web 2.0. Online content management systems are typically dynamic database-driven systems that allow the management of information of virtually all types of web 2.0 based websites – they serve as the back-end of a website and are heavily customised towards the purposes of the front-end website.
The writer focuses too much on the types of services offered as opposed to what the assignment brief is actually asking for, i.e. the web architecture - the fundamental aspects and technical side. The use of diagrams and images would have been an excellent idea in demonstrating the client-server relationship in website communications.

Level of analysis

The writer provides examples of the services mentioned and explains their use in good detail. In addition, the writer also provides detailed responses and examples on part 2. However, the document fails to include any citations as evidence.

Quality of writing

The document largely uses a formal style of writing, with some minor grammatical errors. The writer has also used the appropriate technical terms at this level, though only very briefly (web languages) and does not include other essential terms as described above.
