Mobile Quick Start

Using statistical data and existing popular content, we created a simple mobile site catered to our current student audience using Wordpress. This approach allowed us to launch now with existing tools and content incorporating user agent detection and redirects. Although our mobile site isn’t the height of technology, it is useful, visually appealing, and will provide us with great data to lead us to the next step in eventually upgrading to responsive design and dedicated mobile templates.
