In this program, you'll learn how to create apps for android mobile devices and exploring ideas related to computer science, engineering, design and entrepreneurship. This programs uses App Inventor, a visual programming environment based on a visual blocks programming method that has been touted as having the potential to transform computer science education. This visual, drag-and-drop tool for building mobile apps on the Android platform is the most accessible tool in terms of allowing students with no programming experience to design computer programs.
This course is open to beginners with little or no previous programming experience. Students will work with a visual programming environment that lowers the barrier to app development through a building-block approach to traditional programming. Mobile Apps 1 is designed for students who may not have programming experience but want to be exposed to programming and designing dynamic apps without writing a lot of code. Mobile Apps 2 is more suited to students who want to learn to write code and program using Java.
