AppInventor:Project Timeline

From Notes

Jump to: navigation, search

Every obtainable goal should have a plan, therefore with the help of our administrators we have established a project timeline that will help keep our group on task for the summer. This timeline is subject to change at any time but we are hoping to have a solid timeline by July 2010. If you are interested in viewing our daily log please visit: Our Daily Log


General Project Overview

Phase 1

Master App Inventor to teach the teachers and effectively evaluate the platform.

Phase 2

Teach the Teachers and create exciting classroom oriented apps. Explore the Possibilities.

Phase 3

    • Present our project at various venues and efficiently document our summer for future development.
    • provide supplementary App Inventor learning materials for the students (which when combined with Google's App Inventor Manual and our documentation should provide an open source textbook).
    • Evaluate the App Inventor platform and gauge the possibilities of App Inventor accordingly.

Current Timeline from Now until August 6th

*By Friday 7/16 - have the Candy Store and Graffiti applications finished.

*By Friday 7/23 - have the Pet Store and Zork applications completed (although they can be compromised if necessary)
