In a first-of-its-kind move, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will be offering a class this term revolving around Google Android based phones. As part of their computer science program, the course will start February 8th and work with the Google supplied Android SDK. The class will be broken into teams of 3-4 students each, working on a project for the term. Without giving away too much, Mr.Yu, mobile devices platform coordinator for MIT said that the projects will focus on a range of topics, such as those dealing with location based services (LBS). So far 25 students have been invited to join the class. Finally a class where your professor is not going to throw your phone away if it rings!
UPDATE: Apparently, first-of-its-kind applies to MIT only as Open Source Development of Cognitive Technology on a Mobile Platform is already a class offered at the University of Colorado. Thanks to our readers for being so alert!
