The Internet Praktikum Telekooperation (IPTK) introduces the students to new and emerging technologies for Internet applications, such as P2P, Semantic Web, Web 2.0, or mobile technologies, which are becoming the basic building blocks of the next generation of Internet services. Through practical exercises, students learn how protocols and technologies of the Internet and the WWW work and implement them in practice.
The focus and background of this semester's projects is “Remote Collaboration”, where multiple users can access and modify the same content simultaneously in an interactive application running on their smartphones. The project will encompass a mix of Android and back-end development to ensure synchronized simultaneous access to the same content across different devices. The development process will follow a scrum-process up until the finished product. This should be fun! Among others, some projects of previous lab courses were:
- A Corona app with an integrated platform for trading essential goods
- A Social Network that allows to share pictures and recommends you others to befriend, based on common interests
- A Game that utilizes a device's location. Treasure hunts, running apps, Among Us in the real world were just some of the ideas students came up with
