The initiative has three main components: Student technology, Coding, Enterprise Design Lab
Student technology: all freshman AU18 will be receiving the iPad Pro with apple keyboard, Apple Pencil and a suite of apps during orientation
Coding: This will primarily consist of the Apple coding language, Swift, and will be available to the entire OSU community. OSU is exploring ways to implement the course as a industry credential/certificate baring work at your own pace. AU18 launch of Swift playground with the goal of FY19 for the certification program.
Enterprise Design Lab: A physical location that will be built for those that are interested in app development with experts on hand for coding help. This will be available for everyone. SP18 app development project 1 took place with AU18 Goa for app development project 2.
