I’m currently studying for a BSc degree and about to start my third and final year. This means that the hard work is about to begin – the final project and dissertation. I decided to focus my project on website development because I have a love for it and if I may say so, I’m not bad at it. I’m halfway through the summer holiday and still searching for the ideal project for me.
So my question is: What would be a good website development research project?
Key points to consider are:
1. Must include a product at the end
2. Try to make it something not overdone like Semantic Web (I did consider this topic)
3. Must be achievable for a degree student
4. I would like it to help users (ie. Accessibility and Usability)
Please help me, I’m struggling here! I’m actually scared that I won’t have a project for September!!July 21, 2017 at 11:31 pm #256977BeverleyhParticipant
Necessity is the mother of invention
I don’t think you can go too far wrong if you look to your own experiences for inspiration. Try thinking about your past web dev projects and interactions with clients – what would have made your/another person’s life easier in X situation? For example, I volunteered for an organisation for 7 years and during that time, we needed to help sister organisations collectively get news out into our shared community. So I developed a “community news feed”; the front was a scroller that could be embedded into sister websites, the backend was a non-techy admin panel where multiple nominated users could manage updates. It needed multiple password protected accounts and a log so users could track who was adding/editing entries. It also created and modified an RSS feed that could be used to push updates automatically to Facebook and Twitter (if you’re curious, it was this http://fast-apps.co.uk/fast_feed.php )
Have you got something (a need) like that you can look to and build on?
