The ideal tool for teaching mobile development.

Mobile apps represent a growing field that mixes interactivity with creativity and blurs the lines between the digital and physical worlds. Corona SDK is a powerful, yet easy to learn platform that provides students and educators with a comprehensive toolset to build remarkable mobile experiences.

We’re passionate about education, and have worked with dozens of educational institutions to enable their students to learn mobile development. Corona is in use at institutions like BYU, the Academy of Art University, Robert Morris University and many more, giving students an edge in an increasingly competitive and mobile world.

Real programming

Students learn to write real code with Corona. Drag and drop tools are no substitute for actual programming, and our platform provides those eager to learn with an opportunity to develop anything the imagination conjures. With Corona, students learn Lua, an industry-standard scripting language. Lua is simple enough to pick up in just a few days, yet powerful enough for industrial-strength applications.

With Corona, students will gain applicable, real-world technical skills that will serve them for years to come.

Lightning-fast development

Corona is unmatched in ease of use, setup time and speed of development – with Corona, you build mobile apps 10x faster. Students will build real, cross-platform apps in a matter of days, compared to the many months required to develop natively in Objective-C or Java.

For educators, this translates to less time spent on getting up to speed with the platform, and more time dedicated to curriculum development and actual time working with students.

Serious, but fun

Apps or games? With Corona you don’t have to choose. Do you want your students to build a “real” app? No problem – Corona is great for developing utilities or business apps. But they will also want to build fun mobile games.

Corona is the only platform that allows you to build apps and games in the same course, with the same skills. We’ve got you covered on all fronts.

Leverage Corona’s resources and community

With Corona, help is only a click away. Enjoy a plethora of valuable resources and take advantage of our active developer community, always available to provide a helpful answer in the forum. There are several books focused on Corona and we’ve also worked with experienced educators to develop a Corona-specific curriculum for mobile development.

Finally, we offer free tutorials and videos that cover all aspects of building great mobile apps. Want to see how other schools have used Corona? Read our case studies on Robert Morris University, the University of Bedfordshire and Brigham Young University.
