Guided by their Mind Maps, students create the screens for their apps using the exclusive MAD-learn online platform, which is user-friendly for efficiently and effectively developing a professional looking mobile app. Also, students explore graphic designs that complement their app and learn how to develop a tool that is both useful and aesthetically pleasing for the end user.
Test and Launch
