Abstract

To determine a suitable platform for teaching Web application development in tertiary institutions, this study develops and applies a conceptual framework that can be used to evaluate dynamic Web platforms. In developing the framework, we first identify the concepts of Web application development that should be taught, and the constraints to be satisfied by a platform for teaching identified concepts. Then we establish various criteria that could enhance the teaching of the identified concepts, as well as qualities that would satisfy the constraints to ensure that a selected platform is easy to use, fast, portable and affordable for undergraduate students. A latency experiment to estimate the platforms’ processing speed is further incorporated into the framework. The developed framework could be tested by evaluating various platforms from which a selection emerges.
