In this course, you will learn about the importance of data persistence when building an Android app. We'll introduce you to the fundamentals of SQL, the programming language needed to interact with an SQLite relational database. SQLite is a commonly used method to store large sets of data locally on an Android device.
You'll also learn how to work with Content Providers, which help your data storage to be bug free and to be shared, if you choose, with other apps.
If you’re curious about the road even farther ahead, these are the free courses that make up the Android Basics Nanodegree, in order:

It includes a SQLite course and implements asynchronous database connection, content providers through uri and other patterns. The project is challenging and is a first sample of an app that creates a database in the cell phone. A great course for a big theme.

Way to buggy and way to outdated. Sometimes huge configuration problems. It is not complete waste of time, still working example seams like way more simple then understending google ways of implementing elements. In most cases their not gonna be needed for beginners.
