Mobile App Development

via Live Distance Learning 

“Yes, there’s an App for that!”  Mobile Apps have become a central part of our daily interactions and communications, and we want to help students learn how to create their own apps.  “Beginner Mobile Application Development via Live Distance Learning” teaches students the basics of App Development using App Inventor for the Android mobile platform.  Development of mobile apps start with the basic design of user interfaces and the limited interactive real estate available on a Mobile platform.  In addition to front-end graphics and animation, students are further introduced to backend development to include necessary control logic; incorporate geo-location and maps; integrate phone, wi-fi, and near-field communications (NFC); and process inputs from temperature, barometric, and other sensors.  Finally, students apply these skills through the creation of their own Mobile App projects.  Upon completing this course, students are able to translate their foundational experience in this course to Java and other text-based development environments.  


No previous Coding experience is required.  Previous experience using the internet and mobile communications is recommended.  Previous experience using graphical programming languages like Scratch® is also recommended.
