Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

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.
