The Mobile Applications and Services Laboratory (MASL) is a multidisciplinary initiative hosted by the GVSU School of Computing. MASL offers a unique environment to faculty and students who have interests in emerging mobile technologies from both a research and educational perspective. The emergence of open mobile platforms and thriving mobile application deployment ecosystems makes it possible to explore a variety of experimental in situ research themes in a number of different mobile application domains. Our approach is unique in that while we engage in academic research in the traditional sense, we are also focused on creating an environment for our undergraduate and graduate students which approximates as much as possible the “real world” outside of the academy. To that end we are engaged in a number of projects with external industry partners in which students and faculty are working together to understand how mobile technology can be effectively applied in a variety of real world situations.

Could have been way better
I downloaded the HD version of these lectures. The video is very blurry. I have to strain to read the text. Kindof a big deal when you’re trying to look at code.
On the content end, the first two lectures were good and thoughtful. The second two, taught by a different lecturer, aren’t very useful. He just explains the code, without really getting into any generalities or lessons to be learned. Rather like listening to someone read a manual.
Unreadable code views
I tried both the regular and hi-res versions. The slides are blurry and mostly you can make them out except for some that have graphics with text, and you can just read the code presented slides, but once they open eclipse to show code in the development environment it is completely unreadable - just blurry lines that you can tell probably contain text. Very disappointing. Didn’t bother to try and view content beyond this.
