Mobile Applications and Responsive Web Design
Mobile devices are increasingly prevalent and consequently demand attention from organizations. Mobile devices are not only a telephone -- they are small personal computers including smart phones, PDAs and tablets/iPad. The devices allow the user to access the Web, as well as introduce a world of applications. The Web sites and applications used through a mobile device have serious business impact and potential. This course covers the study of hand-held mobile devices and teaches hands-on approaches to working with them. Concepts addressed include how to create responsive Web sites that take advantage of mobile devices and creating custom device-specific native applications. Assignments will give students the opportunity to create responsive web sites and Android mobile applications that they can run on simulators and/or on their own mobile devices. Having a mobile device is not required and will not impact coursework or grade.
