Abstract: Instructional app development may be regarded by educators and some instructional designers as too time consuming or too complex to enable their participation. However, impressions about the complexity of instructional app development may be founded on fallacious first impressions about computer programming or may be due to limited perceptions about the scope of instructional app development. To make the case for greater participation in instructional app development, this session will describe the full scope of instructional app development, which commonly involves media acquisition and/or media creation in addition to computer programming. Secondly, to demonstrate how contemporary app development tools ease the burden of computer programming, the presenter will demonstrate how to write a 10-line program in Interactive Python that enables learners to practice multiplication.
