How does our learning environment function?

1. Online-Editor and Compiler The online editor and online compiler allow you to compile your programs on our webserver. If you use the online editor, you don't need to install any Java SE Development Kit (JDK), Android SDK or java development environment on your local computer, but you can begin programming right away. You can still save the results of your work locally on your computer. If you work with our online editor for the first time, read the short instructions under the index point Online-Editor.

2. Download on Smartphone

The Apps are compiled, packed and signed on our webserver.The ttransfer via USB cable works only if the smartphone's appropriate driver or synchronisation tools are installed on the calculator (instructions).

3. Smartphone emulator

An emulator can be used in order to test the programs. It can be installed by mouse click from our webserver. The installation can be done without administrator rights and does not require any registy and path entries (instructions).

4. Model examples

An important part of our learning environment are complete, executable model examples.With the link edit example in the online editor the corresponding program code is inserted automatically into the editor window and is available for an adaptation or further development.

5. Develop apps on smartphone/tablets

A german developer group offers a free Android development environment AIDE that functions on smartphones and tables.We provide tools with which the examples of our learning program can be directly edited and executed on smartphones or tablets.
