Implementing a Dynamic Database-Driven Course Using LAMP
Laverty, Joseph Packy; Wood, David; Turchek, John
Information Systems Education Journal, v9 n7 p33-40 Dec 2011
This paper documents the formulation of a database driven open source architecture web development course. The design of a web-based curriculum faces many challenges: a) relative emphasis of client and server-side technologies, b) choice of a server-side language, and c) the cost and efficient delivery of a dynamic web development, database-driven platform. This paper reviews alternative dynamic web development, database-driven platforms and presents a case study of integrating LAMP, an open source dynamic web data-base driven solution, in an Information Systems Curriculum. Three sections were presented over a three-year period. Information concerning course content, instructional delivery methods, alternative LAMP technological infrastructures, student retention and performance are also discussed.
