Web Science: How the Web Is Changing the World

And I think the other thing you would get is access to people who are absolutely the world experts in Web science. NIGEL SHADBOLT: This course is going to give you insights at all levels in the Web, the shape and structure the Web, how we use it to solve problems together, how democracy is being changed by the way we interact on the Web, how science is being changed. WENDY HALL: We want to encourage people to really think about Web science and think about doing a degree in Web science. SUSAN HALFORD: Web science is the name that we have given to an area of study that is trying to understand the impact that the Web is having on the world and the way that the Web is changing. LES CARR: I hope what we'll be able to do with this is to make you think about the Web in a different way.
