There are 6 modules in this course

This module presents our pedagogic approach and demonstrates the kind of applications you will be able to build at the end of the course.

What's included

1 video8 readings2 discussion prompts

In this module you will design your personalized app from a user's perspective. We will show you elements you can combine in your design, and how to document it to get feedback from prospective users or to organize your thoughts. If you get stuck on the quiz or peer-reviewed assignment, you should post on the Discussion Forum to ask for help. And if you finish early, we hope you'll go there to help your fellow classmates as well. To get started, please jump into the first lesson below!

This module guides you in the development of an Android application using the Android Studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE). First it points you to the right place to install the Android Studio IDE and the Android Software Development Kit (SDK). Next it walks you through the steps of using them to create a basic "Hello World" application and it describes how to transfer the application for execution on a physical Android device and on an emulator. At the end of the module you will be familiar with Android tools.

What's included

1 video1 quiz

In this module you associate for the first time a graphical user interface with an activity controlling it, resulting in a first interactive application. We will re-use this same schema next week when developing the 9 apps presented in week 2 (and so will your personalized app).

What's included
