Location: CAC Theater

University Relations is proud to announce a major development for the Wichita State University website: responsive design.

Responsive design is the packaging of Web content specifically for the device that is accessing the page. That means a better, more intuitive experience for people coming to our sites from mobile devices -- regardless of their screen sizes.

This move will impact every Department Tools account and account-holder -- but it is an important and necessary step for the website. Our analytics show an ever-increasing trend of traffic from mobile devices during the past two years. For off-campus traffic, roughly 1 out of every 5 visits to the WSU website comes from a mobile device. We need to make sure those users can easily navigate the site and get to the information they're seeking.

As with all Department Tools rollouts, this switchover will be automatic and relatively trouble-free for those who are following DT best practices. That said, all such launches have their surprises, and will require the engagement and vigilance of DT account-holders to ensure the smoothest possible transition.

If you are a DT account-holed, please join us for a presentation on Responsive Design and what it will mean for your DT pages.
