Course Project Adopting a Mobile Application for Photography Businesses


The greatest value in a course such as Wireless Devices and Applications (WDA) comes from applying the concepts, theories, applications, and devices explored during class. This term project gives you an opportunity to select a topic that interests you and apply concepts from readings, exercises, current devices, and class discussions. The Course Project allows you to apply the tools from the course to assess a problem, diagnose its sources, and recommend a course of action. In developing the project, assume that your manager has requested a thorough analysis and a recommended course of action for a problem that could be resolved by a wireless application. Some examples are a deployment plan for WDAs, a recommendation for specific mobile wireless solutions, or a marketing plan for a new mobile application. Think of yourself as a consultant. Tackle a WDA problem in a specific organization of interest to you.
