The market for apps is soaring. Apple’s App Store and Google Play global downloads reached nearly 26 billion and global mobile app revenue was estimated at $77 billion in 2017. Focusing on the software engineering process, students in this course will design, develop, prototype, and test a mobile app or game. Students apply the main principles, methodologies, and techniques of the software development life cycle and learn how to conduct market research, explore conceptual design with wireframes, mockups and storyboards, prototype development, and software testing. By the end of Semester I, students will have a mobile app or game prototype that they can continue to develop further. Students wishing to pursue a research or design project in Semester II may enroll in the Research/Design Seminar.
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
"My teacher was a wonderful and intelligent teacher who inspired me to be more creative and work efficiently. Unlike any other course, I have never been more efficient on time and creativity than in this one. My teacher’s positive and encouraging words and attitude also pushed me to do even greater things, and I am glad my freshman programming teacher recommended the course to me!”

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE SECOND SEMESTER?
One Schoolhouse is proud to expanded our semester course offerings! These nine courses give students the opportunity to enroll in a project-based second semester research or design seminar. Just like our full-year courses, fall semester courses and the optional second semester seminars are created and taught by dedicated, experienced teachers in the field. The spring seminars give students the opportunity to engage in a self-designed, long-term project on the topic of their choosing.
