Responsive web design (RWD) "is a web development approach that creates dynamic changes to the appearance of a website, depending on the screen size and orientation of the device being used to view it. RWD is one approach to the problem of designing for the multitude of devices available to customers, ranging from tiny phones to huge desktop monitors.” NNg/Nielsen-Norman Group
Made possible by the latest versions of HTML and cascading stylesheets, HTML5 and CSS3, responsive web design has been around for almost 5 years. RWD provides a solution to the conundrum of a library or organization having to maintain multiple versions of their website, each optimized for a different device. In addition, responsiveness is being built into more content management systems, for example Word Press themes, so RWD is within the reach of organizations without large IT departments. This webinar will present an overview of the benefits RWD, and provide criteria to help anyone charged with managing a website choose between a mobile site, RWD, or mobile app development.
