Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 analyse opportunities and requirements for developing cloud-enabled mobile applications
2 identify and evaluate recent trends and advances in mobile and cloud technologies
3 develop mobile applications and the supporting cloud services
4 determine and critically assess performance issues, security, privacy and ethical concerns of the proposed mobile application
5 propose solutions to advanced mobile app features which can enhance user experience and app’s functionality
