3. CONTENT DESCRIPTION

Theory

This subject focuses on the technologies employed in the design and deployment of modern mobile services, mainly those used in cellular networks. Due to the highly dynamic environment, the content will also focus on tools and reference material to allow students to keep updated on new science and technology novelties.

  • Unit 1. Introduction to mobile applications and services.
  • Unit 2. Wireless technologies for mobile devices.
  • Unit 3. Design and management for accessing to remote services.
  • Unit 4. Multimedia services and communications for mobile devices.
  • Unit 5. Communication protocols in mobile and cellular networks.

Practical units

The practical units are scheduled in sessions of 2 hours long. All activities are mandatory and the students must fulfill all the objectives of the task and obtain the lecturer approval.

The main purpose of the practical work is to develop a project along the semester divided in three different stages. These stages represents the activities that will be assess by the end of the semester. The practical units are focused on the design and development of a mobile application that accesses to a remote Internet service.

Unit 1. Basic development of applications for Android.

  • Sessions: 3,5 (7 hours)

Unit 2. Implementation of a client application for Android.

  • Sessions: 5 (10 hours)

Unit 3. Implementation of communication service with Android.

  • Sessions: 5 (10 hours)

Seminars

  1. Android programming IDE. 2 h.
  2. Using Control Version Software. 1 h.
  3. Optional - Testing Android. 2h.

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

A1. Lectures with big group of students

They are based in the explanation of the theory concepts, exercises and practical problems of the course.
All the contents of the subject appear in English in the bibliography. Moreover, exists plenty of information available in Internet.

A2. Lectures with practical groups

They are developed in the lab, and they are based on the implementation of Android applications by the students.

A3. Collective tutorial classes

They are based on seminars and doubt resolution by the teacher.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

At the end of the semester, the student has to choose between two methods of evaluation: CONTINUOUS EVALUATION or FINAL EXAM.

CONTINUOUS EVALUATION

This assessment method is organised according to the activities described in the previous table.

To pass the subject, the student has to get a mark higher or equal than 5.0 out of 10 in the overall result of the evaluated aspects, as long as he or she has obtained a mark higher or equal than 4.0 in each one of those assessed aspects. 

FINAL EXAM EVALUATION

This kind of evaluation is based in only one written exam that evaluates all the aspects of the subject, by assessing the student's acquisition of all the competences and learning outcomes established in the subject. This exam will take place during the Examination period on a date established by the centre. The final exam is weighted in the following way:

- Attendance and participation (S1), theoretical concepts (S2) and Exercises, problems and study cases (S3): 70%.

- Laboratory and computer practical work (S4): 30%. 

In order to pass the subject, the student must have marks higher or equal to 5.0 out of 10 at each part of the final exam.

The students who have already fulfil the requirements of aspect S4 (Laboratory or computer practical work) through the CONTINUOUS EVALUATION, by obtaining a mark higher or equal to 5.0 out of 10 do not have to make this part in the FINAL EXAM evaluation.

Those aspects successfully completed with a mark higher or equal to 5.0 will be considered passing during that academic year.

DETAILS OF THE EVALUATION

The overall evaluation is based on the next aspects:

  • S1, Attendance and active participation (10%)
  • S2, Theoretical concepts (30%)
  • S3, Exercises, cases and works (30%)
  • S4, Laboratory practising (30%)

Next, these aspects are further explained.

S1. Attendance and active participation (10%)

In this aspect, the CG4 and CG9 competences are evaluated.

The attendance will be taken into account within the theoretical and laboratory activities, which represents the 5% of the overall mark. Each missed class represent a loss of 0.25% of the 5%. A total of 50% of missed classes in theoretical or laboratory will represent a mark of 0.

The active participation in the lectures will represent the other 5% of the overall mark.

S2. Theoretical concepts (30%)

In this aspect, the CG.3, CG.4, CG.6 and C.7 competences are evaluated.

This aspect is evaluated in with a test in the LMS for each unit.

S3. Exercises, cases and works (30%)

In this aspect, the CG.3, CG.4, CG.6, CG9, C.7 and TEL.7 competences are evaluated.

This aspect is evaluated with personal reports or exercises.

S4. Laboratory practising (30%)

In this aspect, the CG.3, CG.4, CG.6, CG9 and C.7 competencies are evaluated.

The students must implement different applications and write technical reports for the practical activities along the semester.
