FGCU's Office of Continuing Education Introduces New Online Course: Creating Mobile Apps

FORT MYERS, FL - Florida Gulf Coast University's Office of Continuing Education, in partnership with ed2go to offer hundreds of online courses, announces the launch of "Creating Mobile Apps with HTML5."

The course teaches participants how to use HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript to build and optimize Web apps for almost any mobile device including Apple's iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone. By the end of the course, students will know how to convert their HTML5 apps into native apps that they can submit to app stores such as Apple's App Store, Google Play and Blackberry App World.

This course is part of the Office of Continuing Education's growing catalog of more than 300 instructor-facilitated online courses. Through well-crafted lessons, expert online instruction, and interaction with fellow students, participants will gain valuable knowledge at their convenience. Students have the flexibility to study at their own pace combined with enough structure and support to complete the course, and access the classroom 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection.

New sessions of each course run every month. They last six weeks, with two new lessons released weekly (for a total of 12). The courses are entirely Web-based with comprehensive lessons, quizzes and assignments. A dedicated professional instructor facilitates every course; pacing learners, answering questions, giving feedback and facilitating discussions.
