Programming Mobile Applications for Android Handheld Systems course

Programming Mobile Applications for Android Handheld Systems

Coursera just sent me the certificate for completing with distinction the course Programming Mobile Applications for Android Handheld Systems. This course is endorsed by the university of Maryland and lectured by Dr. Adan Porter.

Something worthy to mention about this Android course is that it’s really well structured, and the good quality of the videos and assignments. It makes me recall my time at college because the projects are very organized with clear objectives. In fact project’s evaluations are done automatically with JUnits. But the final project is evaluated by other peers (4 in total).

For this course I took the Signature Track, which is the paid option where the identity is checked by a keyboard pattern recognition software and verified by checking  the student’s photo (at the end of the course some assistants check those pics). With these validations they grant a certificate that can be verified using the following links:

Course Creative, Serious and Playful Science of Android Apps

Coursera androidapps101 2014 Computer Science and Programming Badge

Recently I received the awards for the Android course Creative, Serious and Playful Science of Android Apps lectured by Lawrence Angrave from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The course was designed to learn Android programing from scratch, therefore if you are interesting in developing for this platform this is a good starting point. The video lectures were made in English, but there are subtitles for Spanish and even English, so language is not barrier.

The Awards

The awards I earned were these:

  • Statement of Accomplishment:  This is a sort of of certificate which you earn when accomplishing 70% or higher. I got 94.6%
  • Computer Science and Programming Badge: This is a kind of badge they gave you also when you accomplished 70% or higher.

This awards are not part of the Signature Track, which let you share and validate this grade,  but you have to pay $49 for this feature.
