Abstract

Currently, Android is used in 70% of smartphones worldwide, which results in the rising importance of Android application programming. To improve its educations, we have developed Android Programming Learning Assistance System: APLAS, as a teaching aid for students to practice self-learning. Widgets take significant roles in Android programming for interactive applications using User Interface (UI). Students are required to master how to use them in implementing highly usable UI. In this paper, we propose the Advanced Widgets learning topic to execute an interactive application named Color game in APLAS. For evaluations, we assign the proposal to 40 undergraduate students in Indonesia, where 95% of them successfully solved it. Thus, the effectiveness of the proposal was confirmed
