Mobile application development for non-programmers
Have an idea for an app? Design, build, and distribute your own unique mobile application in this project-centered course. By actively applying new concepts as you learn, you will have a finished project that you can use and share at the end of the course.
Mobile applications are increasingly playing a vital role in business with a larger customer base as well as workforce relying on the convenience of access on-demand to information and services. Consider these facts:
We are spending more time online than with any other media
We are spending much of that digital time on smart mobile devices
Time spent per day on mobile devices has increased 575% in three years
80% of the time spent on mobile devices is spent using apps
Apps offer a user experience which even 'Responsive Websites' are unable to provide.
As you can see, apps are becoming the dominant form of digital interaction. The customers in today's world are on the move and they're using mobile application platforms to get there.
This course is project oriented and examines the principles of mobile application design and development. Students will learn mobile application development for iOS, Android and Windows platforms. The topics for this course will include mobile application development lifecycle (with specific focus on developing requirements), usability, app functions, use of widgets, integrating social media and handling data.
This can become your next career!
