They will also learn how to make their own iPhone or iPad apps with Apple’s Xcode and Swift programming language, through a series of hands-on tutorials and practices. Even the students have little programming knowledge would be able to follow along with the step-by-step instructions and understand how a mobile app is developed. More importantly, students can build up their understanding of programming through making apps and solving real world problems logically and programmatically. By the end of the course, they are expected to be experienced enough to transform their ideas into real apps. This course is a stepping stone to open up students’ curiosity to learn and explore the realm of coding and programming.
