This innovative online Android OS App Development course is structured in such a way that it offers solid support and guidance throughout the learning process.”

NJIT Continuing Professional Education is offering a valuable, in-demand training class in Android OS Application Development. This non-credit, IT development course is open to the general public and is available in a 100% online format. Entrepreneurs and the computing literate will learn what they need to know to design and implement software using the Android 2.2 (or higher) environment. Students are taught how to create and deploy Android applications on the software simulator and hardware devices.

This innovative online android OS app development course is structured so that it offers solid support and guidance from an NJIT expert instructor, who is online throughout the learning process. In the beginning, students are given enough time to prepare the development environment and to weed out any problems prior to the real programming. A weekly assignment is required, motivating the student to follow the materials in the main reference textbooks for timely submission. The assignments also help the instructor to gauge the students’ comprehension of materials. As the weekly assignments become more complicated, ample support is given to the students through scheduled live chats with the course instructor, IRC chat rooms and forum discussions. Students also can expect to receive emails from the online instructor as another way to receive assistance with specific questions and issues. The training course’s capstone is the design by students of a final new project application. This not only affirms that new learning has occurred, but also is a trial run of the students’ ability to develop Android OS apps as an entrepreneur or for their employer.
