Prof. Parham Aarabi of Computer Science Engineering will be the lead instructor on a new MOOC series aimed at teaching learners iOS application development skills. Congratulations are in order, as the project was successful in an RFP competition for a funding advance from Coursera to support the design and development of a sequence of these four new MOOCs. The development of applications for mobile devices has been identified as a priority area by Coursera.
Working with a team that will leverage expertise from the field, from the MADLab here at UofT and from the instructional technology team at FASE, this project will be working on a fast track to launch in fall of 2015. Curriculum plans are already well under way! To pull it all together, five members of the development team will be working with Coursera on fine tuning the alignment of the instructional approach to ensure coherence across the four MOOC sessions, culminating in a capstone project.
This specialization series will focus on creating mobile apps on the iOS platform, including Swift language syntax, tools, as well as platform details including building Apple Watch applications. The target audience includes students and professionals who wish to create apps for iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watch devices.
Stay tuned! Coming soon!
