Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes

The work during the semester is focused on the development of data management systems, adapted various contexts where the cataloging or audiovisual information is required.
In all sessions, after a more theoretical part, the work is mostly applied to the design and development of the different projects. All the projects are regularly presented by each group and discussed within the class.

The development process contains several stages:
(A) The proposal of an audiovisual information management system for a specific domain;
(B) A detailed Proposal of an user interface model to the system;
(C) The design of a data model that supports the system;
(D) The creation of a set of structured data to be used in the testing phase;
(E) The development of a small prototype of the system;
(F) The creation of mechanisms for metadata import and export;
