Responsive Web Design

responsive_web_design

Responsive Web Design is a modern approach to designing websites that modify the structure of the content for the device you are using.  Mobile devices are becoming increasingly used to access websites.  In the past web designers created sites for screen view on a computer and a separate site for mobile devices. Responsive design allows designers to create a single site that adjusts to the device and looks good on each device.

Mercer University is working on making our site Responsive & What does this mean for our CMS Builders and Contributors?

We will be providing training and resources to assist CMS Builders and Contributors to make the shift to Responsive design.  It is important to look at your site on devices other than the computer once you make edits to ensure that your site looks good on all devices. More training, resources and information will be coming soon to keep you updated and to understand responsive web design as we move forward.
