Mobile is so 2011. Make all your campus sites & apps look great on any device.

#AIM1 Applications, Integration and Mobile Track

102 D & E, Frontier Airlines Center


At this point, most universities have established some level of mobile presence, whether it's an app or a web-based mobile site.  This is great if people want to look up a contact in the mobile directory, the location of a building, or places to eat on campus, but what about prospective students looking for admissions related information on their mobile device, and what about the thousands of webpages and web applications most campuses currently maintain? How can we make sure those are optimized for all resolutions including phones and tablets of all sizes?  This session will cover some of benefits and "gotchas" of responsive design, a strategy to deploy responsive design as a “self service” for web developers using templates, ideas for how your mobile site (m.university.edu) can co-exist with your responsive web pages and projections about what's next for responsive design.
