Learn how to design, build and deploy apps for Android and iOS devices on this new top-up course. The course is informed by Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and User Experience Design (UXD). HCI and UXD research has impact wherever digital technologies are used at a personal level including education, domestic activity, exercise, and promoting secure on-line behaviours in users. You'll learn about and use Xcode, Swift, Android Studio, Cisco OS, Wireshark and Asterisk to build an interactive and dynamic mobile app.
This course is delivered at our study centre in Botswana. Please contact the study centre directly for more information about start dates and fees.
We employ a blended teaching and learning approach and work to consistently to expose you to real-world industrial activity while developing essential practical skills. You will learn through a mix of lectures, interactive lectorials, lab-based practicals, classroom-based seminars, group problem-solving sessions, case studies, guest expert lectures, one-to-one and group supervision and online learning.
Most of the assessments are made up of practical coursework with some written assessments and occasional written examinations or time-constrained assessments.
Undertake advanced study in order to define, plan and a develop a proposal for a research investigation and scope, plan, develop and produce an academic research ‘paper’.
Work with a client to develop a practical solution to a business problem, using up-to-date practitioner methods across the project life cycle.
Learn how to build a highly interactive and dynamic native mobile application. This will include understanding the systems involved, from device hardware and software on which information is stored, including the platform database technologies used to structure and access data, to the media rich interface features needed to create good user experiences which leverage the native mobile platform.
Gain experience in the specifics of development for the iPhone, iPad and iWatch.
Experience the many applications and facets that are used to create a fully converged up to date telecommunications network capable of carrying both voice and data. It combines mobile phone technologies with that of the wireless LAN environment. The use of both softphones and power over ethernet phones and switches will give you the informed information required to use in an industrial background.
Study the principles and practices that ensure users gain the most appropriate experience when interacting with computer-based software and hardware systems. Focus on the three core principles of interaction design: understanding users and their contexts which involve learning techniques to profile users and analyse their tasks; design principles such as layout and dialogue design and user-centred evaluation methods such as usability testing and expert inspection.
