SIGITE/RIIT 2012 » ACM Conference on IT Education/Research » App Inventor for Android in a Healthcare IT Course

App Inventor for Android in a Healthcare IT Course

  • App Inventor for Android is a new programming environment that allows novice programmers to build applications for Android mobile devices. In this paper, we describe a healthcare IT course in which students with little or no programming background built healthcare related mobile applications. The course was designed based on the principles of studio-based learning, with students completing and sharing projects of their own choosing. Mobile applications were used to illustrate the role of IT applications in healthcare and teach design and user interface principles. In this paper, we discuss our experiences with this augmented course, describing the rationale, the process of introducing the new material, the student-designed applications, and the results from the course evaluation.
