KDU College Penang, in collaboration with Celcom, recently conducted a series of League of Extraordinary Developers Challenge
(LEDC) workshops for its IT graduates. The workshops focused on the building of mobile app concepts within an educational cum competition-based environment.
Two top KDU College Penang students scored big with their mobile app ideas at the two-day AppLab-Mobile App Conceptualisation workshop.
The objective of the workshop is to help students understand and apply rapid prototyping in app development. Students also learn to document their ideas in a digital wireframe format.
Ang Chun Yee, who is pursuing the KDU-UNN Bachelor of Science (Hons) Computing Studies programme, won a HTC Wildfire S Android Phone for her “Travel Warning” app. The app features cultural practices of a country as a guide for the user on arrival.
Vanessa Tan Xiang Yie also won the same phone by impressing Celcom representatives with her interactive swipe and animated app titled “World Festival List”.
“The students’ knowledge and content output in mobile app creation have improved tremendously since our partnership with KDU College Penang for the LEDC.” said Celcom Axiata Bhd assistant manager Gan Yeow Jin who looks forward to more such collaborations.
“Partnership with industry giants such as Celcom is important for us as the knowledge we receive from this sharing process gives our students insights into the latest trends in the ever evolving IT industry,” said KDU College Penang head of School of Engineering, Science and Technology Amy Leow Saw Imm.
