Abstract

APP Inventor is a visual programming software developed by MIT that can quickly develop android APP without code writing. In the traditional non-computer professional C programming language courses, students generally poor acceptance, teaching is not good. Now cultivate students’ computational thinking by piloting in the non-computer major with APP Inventor as their first computer language course for students. At the same time, students in the learning process generally feel easy to learn, interesting, high degree of acceptance, and achieved good teaching results.
