'''AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript and XML)''' is a modern web design technique that allows for more interactivity by making webpages that fetch data in the background and alter themselves without reloading. This makes the website feel much more like an application. AJAX is 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 in itself.

As of July 2006, Moodle has adopted the [[Development:YUI|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]]
