Teaching Mobile Web Application Development: Challenges Faced And Lessons Learned

  • Given the increasing popularity of smartphones and their accompanying applications, a number of Higher Education (HE) institutions in the UK are offering a mobile applications development module as part of their undergraduate degrees. Each institution has their own method of implementing such a module and will also have certain restrictions to work within.
    This paper reports on the author’s experiences of delivering a Mobile Application Development module to 3rd year undergraduate Web Systems Development (WSD) students and the challenges faced in developing an alternative curriculum for a module originally intended for Computing students with experience using the Java programming language. Module evaluations indicate that the alternative curriculum provided to WSD students was well received and the practical hands-on tutorials used in the delivery of the module give students a sense of empowerment and the confidence they need to succeed.
