Katie Butler

Hi i’m Katie, and 20 years old.

I’m currently a third year specialist in Web and New Media at UCE, Birmingham…now known as Birmingham City University!

So far, I have taken modules such as ‘Music Online,’ ‘Interactive Promotion,’ ‘Web Design,’ and ‘Magazine & Newspaper Design,’ all of which have provided me with key specialist skills within the field.

As part of a module ‘MC635 Web & New Media Practice,’ I will be using this blog to highlight current news and relevant sources of information for an area of web that particularly interests me – Web 2.0 

Web 2.0 describes a new wave of Internet applications that aim to facilitate the sharing of information and content between web users. This could include anything from a Wiki to a social networking site such as Facebook.

Web 2.0, broadly speaking, will also form the basis of my production work within this module.
