Learning Outcomes


Explain the individual characteristics of mobile and ubiquitous computing, how they interrelate, and why (and how) these characteristics should be considered in the design, development, and evaluation of computing technologies.


Apply theoretical and practical knowledge to develop applications that are mobile-device specific and that demonstrate current practice in mobile and ubiquitous computing contexts.


Apply standard design approaches to create and evaluate user interfaces and to adapt these interfaces to the particular emerging demands of mobile and ubiquitous computing systems.


Apply theoretical and practical knowledge to develop mobile-specific applications using appropriately selected cross-platform approaches that demonstrate current practice in mobile application development.
