About CourseQueensland University of Technology
Learn how to create apps to use in your own teaching practice
There are many educational apps available, but the majority are created by non-educators.

It's a great course, but it would be nice if it could be developed as a case study for a particular app
This course taught me how to make an app that I wanted. It was great.
The course points out a great theme in how to create applications to be used in your own teaching practice and is very practical.
The course is very good, it is also being updated as I saw today. It is perfect for both beginners and users of MS Office. I would recommend it
