Android has reached over 1 million devices revealed by senior vice president of Android recently. Android operating system occupies 85% of market in 2014, according to report. Due to many advantages of Android device, such as open source, Google support, advanced software programmable framework in popular programming language Java, Android has been and remained to be the most popular mobile device and operating systems in market. Due to large popularity of user markets, the research study of mobile computing is raising to a challenge level. In addition, the number of malicious applications is increasing continually. All these reasons raise a high challenge to computer science researchers and educators. How to build next generation of workforce that are equipped with techniques and problem solving capabilities in the mobile pervasive computing and security has drawn attentions to researchers and STEM educators. As a collaborative effort supported by NSF program, this paper presented a laboratory development conducted in computer science program at Alabama A&M University regarding to mobile computing and security issues. In addition, class studies that apply the laboratories to classroom teaching using flip-flop were simply discussed. Several interesting observed experimental results that demonstrated a relation between project based learning (PBL) and flip teaching through an online environment were presented finally, while these studied was facilitated by the mechanisms provided by Blackboard.
