|Examination||EXAMINATION - 2HRS||60|
Not applicable: students failing a unit of assessment resit the assessment in its original format.
The assessment strategy for this module is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate the learning outcomes. The written examination will assess the knowledge and assimilation of terminology, concepts and theory of mobile operating systems and programming, as well as the ability to develop new applications.
The Assignment will assess the ability to use the IDE and SDK for application development. The programming Lab will evaluate the acquired technical skills and expertise required for programming mobile devices.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
2 hours closed book written examination
2 x 3-hours of laboratory programming.
Individual formal technical report on selected application programming.
Formative assessment and feedback
For the module, students will receive formative assessment/feedback in the following ways.
During lectures, by question and answer sessions
During tutorials/tutorial classes
By means of unassessed tutorial problem sheets (with answers/model solutions)
During supervised laboratory sessions
During supervised computer laboratory sessions
Via the marking of written reports
Via assessed coursework
- To introduce and explain in some depth different operating systems (OS) for mobile device programming and related software development kits (SDK) and integrated development environment (IDE)
- To teach basic principles and methods required to develop new applications and services on a different platform.
- To provide practical experience based on available integrated development environments (software development, compilation and emulation) and mobile devices.

P - Professional/Practical skills
Overall student workload
Independent Study Hours: 110
Lecture Hours: 30
Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to achieve the following aims.
These will enable students to develop cognitive skills, practical skills; and key transferable skills necessary for developing future mobile applications and services.
Learning and teaching methods include the following.
Lectures: 10 weeks teaching of total 30 hours
Labs: To learn the use of different IDEs as well as SDKs and hardware devices. To be able to develop new applications on different devices with different operating systems.
- Assignment(s): the students will be asked to develop, debug and test application programs using different programming methods (Arduino, C++ and Java) with different hardware devices to demonstrate their understanding of mobile Operating Systems and capability of developing mobile applications and services.
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
