Website Review: MIT's App Inventor

MIT’s APP INVENTOR is a website for teaching and learning how to build mobile apps for Androids.
The website contains field-tested tutorials that beginners can use to learn programming and app development.
The website is divided into two sections: Learn and Teach.
The Learn section provides access to a “course in a box”, video tutorials, a book, and other learning materials.
The Teach section section contains useful resources to help teachers design courses and modules that use the App Inventor software. It contains lesson plans, teaching ideas, and lots of suggestions and examples.
Librarians will find this to be a useful resource for technology teachers developing instructional materials related to programming. It’s also a great website for students who want to learn on their own apps. Computer clubs and after-school groups may also benefit from the resources at the website.
