App Inventor

An open source, Web-based system developed by Google that allowed people to create Android apps without having to know how to code. Instead of writing code, the Android mobile app can be visually designed with App Inventor.

In August 2011, MIT opened its Center for Mobile Learning, to focus on new mobile technology and applications that allow people to study and learn from anywhere. One of the center's first activities is to extend and integrate App Inventor for Android to MIT's research in educational technology.

See Android Codenames to learn about updates for the open source Android mobile operating system.
