Course Description

This competency-based course will provide students with the "hands-on" skills to plan, design, and prototype mobile applications using the client-side web development languages HTML5 and CSS3, and a JavaScript Library. Students learn to structure mobile applications that include headers, footers, toolbars, navbars, lists, forms, grids, panels, and widgets. Students will create designs and themes for mobile device applications. The course will culminate in the plan, design, and prototype construction of an enterprise mobile application.
