It describes a new way of working with existing technologies (including [[HTML]], [[Javascript]], [[CSS]] and the ''XMLHttpRequest object'' amongst others) rather than a new piece of technology.
== Ajax in Moodle ==
Moodle has recently (July 2006) adopted the [[Yahoo! user interface library]] and most future work in this area will  build upon that foundation.
There are several current projects that make use of these technologies e.g.:
* [[Chameleon]] theme
* [[Student projects/AJAX course format]]

* [[Javascript]]
* [[Unobtrusive javascript]]
* [[Hijax]]
