Workshop #W19
CE Offered: BACB
CANCELED: Create Your Own Computer Applications for Research and Application: Easy to Learn LiveCode Programming Environment
Friday, May 27, 2016
4:00 PM–7:00 PM
Vevey 2, Swissotel
Area: EDC; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: William F. Potter, Ph.D.

Description: LiveCode is a free, simple to learn, yet powerful platform for creating custom computer programs and phone apps (IPhone and Android). Based on HyperCard, the software uses English-like terminology to facilitate the creation of software. This workshop will provide an introduction to the platform, provide an overview of how it works, and then provide some initial hands-on training to create a simple program. The software will be provided on a USB drive, so participants should bring laptops (Mac or PC with a USB slot). During the actual training, participants will create their own computer programs as directed by the facilitators (but see the advanced course for more complex programs). The workshop also will cover actual and potential applications that LiveCode programs can be used for (e.g., tact training, use in stimulus-equivalence studies). Finally, participants will be provided with self-study materials and completed applications (source-code) for them to review, modify, and use.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, the participant will be able to: (1) have an overview of the software; (2) install and interact with the LiveCode software; (3) create one or more simple computer programs
Activities: Instructional strategies include: lecture, demonstration, hands on activities with support from facilitators, programmed activities.
Audience: Behavior analysts who would like to use technology to facilitate research or application. No programming experience is necessary, but general familiarity with a computer is useful (opening documents, saving them, etc.).
