This webinar will introduce and explore the design and construction process of making mobile apps for education. Robert J. Thompson created his own iOS mobile phone and tablet apps for his interactive design classes at Youngstown State University to have a more direct method of communicating with his students. The process of app development, from original concept to final publication on the App Store, underwent significant research, iterations, failures, compromises, lessons, and ultimately successes. Hear RJ's take on best practices for creating your own mobile learning app and how he integrates it in classroom learning.
