Adelphi Website is Now Mobile Responsive

by Stephanie Witkin

The Webteam and Web Technologists in the Office of Information Technology have been working on creating a more mobile and would like to announce that starting January 22, 2015 they have launched a majority of the public website to be optimized for handheld mobile devices.

At present the team has completed about 70 percent of the Adelphi University website to utilize Responsive Web Design (RWD), which allows the webpage to adapt and enhance content for the viewing environment. This allows for easier navigation and reading of the website by the user—decreasing the need for zooming, panning, and scrolling.

The team continues to work towards converting the remaining webpages to use RWD, making completely accessible from tablets, phones and eReaders.
