The Apps Resource Centre helps students develop a combination of design and programming skills by providing guidance and mentoring from professional computer programmers and designers.

We aim to:

  1. Develop mobile apps to address problems lecturers have in their courses with Hong Kong students.
  2. Create a studio-based learning atmosphere conducive to fostering creativity and innovation, under which students can exercise their problem-solving and design skills through the creation of mobile apps.
  3. Encourage students to serve the larger community by creating mobile apps benefiting educational, social, and environmental causes.

The Apps Resource Centre is a cross-institutional initiative funded by The University Grants Committee of Hong Kong: “Coding, Design, and Global Involvement: Engaging Students in Multi-domain Active Learning Through the Creation of Mobile Apps and an Apps Resource Centre (ARC)”  (HKBU1/T&L/16-19)
