Abstract

When entering a modern design practice, architecture & design students must not only be skilled in current CAD applications but must also be familiar in the transfer and organisation of information and data on the Internet. Similarly, the PgDip in Computer Aided Building Design (CABD) at the University of Strathclyde addresses not only the conventional spread of CAD tools but also investigates the promise of collaborative design through on-line communications and the sharing of project data. This aspect of technology forms the core of the Internet & WWW Module within which the aim is to investigate the strengths and weaknesses of the Internet as a design communication medium and also to promote group working, peer learning and the development of students ICT and organisational skills, while also encouraging co-operative and collaborative working.
