Boštjan Primožič (2010) Prototype of gadgets for the web site of Faculty of computer and information science. EngD thesis.
Diploma paper discusses a development of the so-called Google gadgets, miniature web applications that represent a new way of informing a user. They can be incorporated into different places. Most commonly that is iGoogle webpage or a desktop, but they can be placed on any other webpage as well. Apart from the gadgets themselves that serve as a method of presenting web contents, technology in the background which generates these contents is of equal importance. The ultimate purpose of my diploma paper was to make gadgets that would offer a simple access to frequently used information in connection with studies to students of the Faculty of computer and information science. Currently, these gadgets are scattered on many webpages; from the webpage of the faculty and e-Študent system to the web classroom. As a result, 9 gadgets have been made, each of them enabling access to particular information: as for example a gadget that involves a daily or a weekly schedule or the one that offers a list of subjects for each individual student, as well as news and notifications. We hope that students will find them useful and will make suggestions for their further improvement and expansion of their functionality.
