Abstract: The mobile internet is a new and fast developing industry, which requires a lot of talent. The computer major in vocational colleges faces the difficulty of recruiting students and a low employment rate of graduates. The solution is to establish new courses in line with the development of IT industry. Android programming is an important technology of the mobile internet. Constructing a web-based course can propagate this new technology to higher vocational students. After analysing the learning characteristics of higher vocational students and the course characteristics of Android programming, this article proposes a framework for the web-based course on Android programming for higher vocational students and discusses how to design the course content by applying project-based teaching. The course embodies personalised learning, project-oriented teaching, mutual aid learning, and mobile learning. The result shows that the course is useful for students to study Android programming and majority of the students engage with the designed learning activities in the course.
