Welcome to our Fundamentals of Mobile App Design Online Short Course. This course is aimed to equip you with the tools to help you in your app journey from taking a simple idea and translating it into a tangible blueprint that you can then build. Apps are an expensive investment and it takes careful planning and strategy before you can start building or developing anything. We will also cover some of the technology options that you can consider but ultimately the heart of any app is the user experience and product offering. By the end of this course you would have taken that app idea and translated it into something tangible that can be pitched to potential investors or to your business units.
