Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This unit focuses on a range of mobile technologies, mobile devices, standards and services that enable interaction between people and businesses. This includes the modern software and operating systems that drive mobile devices. The students study the issues of performance, program development, system testing, re-usability, and maintenance in such systems via laboratory experimentation and current industry examples. Windows Phone, Android, iOS and appropriate emulators are used in experiments and projects to develop applications for mobile devices. The students develop mobile applications in business-to-consumer (B2C) and health care services using the voice, text, data, imaging, or video functions.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:

1. Describe and discuss the various issues associated with modern mobile technologies, devices, standards and services for use with multiple platforms;

2. Apply problem solving skills in designing and development: mobile application structures, mobile applications with database, and security requirements;

3. Analyse mobile technologies, and interpret the technical requirements for a given mobile application;

4. Design and develop mobile applications using Android, iOS, Windows Phone and cross-platform development software tools;

5. Review and analyse modern mobile technologies, devices, standards and services, including the hardware and software associated with mobile technologies, operating systems for mobile devices, and programming languages used in mobile application development;
