Mobile phones have been popular personal devices in recent years. They are used not only the communication tools but also an integrated platform with the support from powerful hardware. Rich applications are also provided for mobile phones. The problem of software development becomes more acute with the great advance of mobile phones and the applications. It is also a challenge on how to teach software development for mobile phones to the students. The operating system and the related APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) play an important role in this issue. In this paper, we describe a case study of course design for software development on mobile phones. We select OMS (Open Mobile System) and its APIS as the basic development system. The students can master the basic skills in mobile software programming. And our design can also connect the education with the needs of the industry.
