Learning objectives


  • The student must gain knowledge about the development of mobile applications, and experience with the use of tools in the development of a specific mobile application for a specific case. Possible tools could be Android Studio and Java / Android programming.


After completing the course module, the student must be able to

  • establish and configure a tool for mobile application
  • development use the tool to develop a concrete prototype application
  • use the tool for implementing advanced mobile interaction design with e.g. Multi-Touch and accelerometer support
  • use the tool for debugging program code
  • transfer and run the application on a mobile device


After completing the course module, the student must be able to:
  • develop a concrete mobile application at prototype level
  • identify and exploit relevant technical possibilities in a mobile SDK in connection with a specific case
  • develop and debug program code
  • develop a mobile interaction design
