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 While many people may think that web 2.0 is a newer version of the World Wide Web, It is actually just a change in the way that developers use the web.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.

A  that presents short journal entries in chronological order, newest first, is typically referred to as a "blog" or "weblog." Most blogs emphasize links to other pages and sites, and most entries are short commentaries or even simple one-sentence links to an interesting page somewhere else. Many blogs are concerned with current news events and often provide unabashedly partisan commentary. "Blogging," of course, is the act of writing a blog; those who write blogs are sometimes referred to as "bloggers."

Here's what a star student thought of this essay


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.

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.

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.
