Building and Deploying Android App Projects

Vanderbilt University via Coursera

students interested
This is a 4 week MOOC that teaches learners how to create an app from scratch using Android Studio, as well as learning how to use various Android Studio tools, such as the debugger, resource editor, logging mechanisms, etc. This MOOC also covers basic concepts and APIs related to Android’s Material Design paradigm. Students will work incrementally on a hands-on project involving a simple Material Design-based music streaming app throughout the MOOC, i.e., each week they will add additional capabilities to it, based on the material covered in that week’s lecture videos.

There will be roughly 3-4 hours of student engagement time per week, including video lectures, quizzes, and programming assignments. The ordering of the modules below is designed to be flexible. In particular, students can watch the videos in whatever order suits their experience and needs, e.g., they may want to watch the Material Design videos prior to the advanced Android Studio videos if they prefer to learn about Material Design first.
