Creating Apps in the Classroom

Vinesh Chandra, Queensland University of Technology

Learn how to create apps to use in your own teaching practice

There are many educational apps available, but the majority are created by non-educators.

Platforms for developing apps are becoming increasingly user-friendly, so it’s easier for teachers to create apps to support their own classroom activities.

In this course, you’ll learn how to play a more proactive role as an app creator. You’ll learn how to create at least five pages of a simple app that can be used to demonstrate how content, technology and pedagogy are related.

By the end of the course, you’ll know how to use an app creation site to design and develop a sample app.

This course is part of our Study with Australia collection, with free upgrades and digital certificates supported by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission until 31st July, 2020. Explore more courses from leading Australian education providers.
