Unit 4IT10: Programming Concepts and Java for Android Programming

Unit code: H/617/6701 RQF

Level: 4

Unit Aims

This unit aims to develop programming skills. This unit includes variables, control and decision (if and switch) as well as loops and program control (for, while, do-while).

This unit also enables learners to develop software for Android telephones using Java development tools. The emphasis is on developing applications as a community that run on the Android platform. Successful completion of this unit will give learners an insight into today’s common procedures for getting their mobile application work published.

Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria

Learning Outcomes: To achieve this unit, the learner must be able to:

Assessment Criteria: Assessment of these outcomes demonstrates the learner can:

1. Create a computer program

1.1 Define conditions, loops and program control

1.2 Use different kinds of control structures to create a program

1.3 Apply a range of techniques (data and expressions, classes and objects, conditions and decisions, loops and program controls and arrays) to create a computer program that meets the specification

2. Create an Android program

2.1 Create a responsive and touch-friendly user interface through the use of mobile user interface design techniques and standards

2.2 Apply a range of techniques (activities and layout, components, intent, toast, broadcast mechanism, service and storage) to create an Android program that meets the specification

2.3 Analyse the application of a range of development tools
