Create Mobile and Web Apps
You have seen how Web and Mobile Applications have changed the way we live and work. Leverage your learners’ connection to web and mobile technology to engage them in the high demand STEM career of coding and design. There continues to be a shortage of skilled coders due to a lack of programming courses available to learners.
New to programming educators may struggle with implementing coding courses. This course solves both of these problems by design. Learners and teachers do not need any previous coding or design experience for this course.
Let this be an exciting introduction and great first step towards becoming future ready, advanced education and a new career.
Teachers Point of View
“The integration of the IDE and your new tools right into the Web and Mobile App Course has been a godsend for us here at HHS—especially now in the days of COVID. Last year, as you may recall, before your updates, we had to use these other online tools like PhoneGap, Orion hub, Blue Stacks, etc. Our PCs were having a hard time handling all of that, and our kids, even the highly motivated ones, were getting frustrated. Frustrated students are always hard to get to engage, and I know you heard me when I told you the struggles we were having with all those 3rd party tools. Even with COVID, for now this is the best it has been in the 4 years I have been using mobile apps. Things have just been working nicely, & I think that is because of all of the integration that has taken place. ”
