Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This is a practically oriented course in the development of mobile applications, including data mining techniques, for sports and health. The following topics are included in the course:

·        How mobile applications can be used in sports and health.

·        Common mobile platforms, such as smartphones, tablets, smart watches and bracelets, and wearables.

·        Hardware, operating systems, and development tools for mobile platforms as well as API:s for third party tools.

·        Mobile application programming:

o   Application components

o   User interfaces

o   Handling of persistent data

o   Sensors in mobile devices

  • Platform-independent development
  • Cloud and messaging services for mobile systems
  • The usage of camera for video analysis

Intended learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course the student will be able to:

·        design and develop applications for mobile devices, both self-contained and those that communicate over networks, including the ability to consider hardware and network limitations during design

·        develop usage-tailored user interfaces for mobile devices and judge whether they are sufficiently functional for their intended use.

·        develop mobile phone software that uses both internal and external sensors, such as GPS, accelerometer, wearables, and camera.

·        describe several cloud and messaging services for mobile devices in connection with data analysis for sports and health applications.

·        apply existing data analysis methods on sensor data to find patterns and insights for sports and health

For higher grades it is also required that the student

•        has the ability to explain, analyze, and critically evaluate some recent trends within the area of mobile applications for sports and health

•        demonstrate a large degree of independence and ability to present one’s own work
