Responsive Web Design

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Most workplace learning professionals realize the importance of adopting mobile learning strategies for new and existing training programs. Often the problem is not why use mobile, but rather how do practitioners make mobile learning effective for users.

Responsive web design (RWD) refers to the approach to web design in which an online site is crafted to provide an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices—from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones. RWD is intended to make reading and navigation using a mobile device simple, with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling required. Originally named by Ethan Marcotte, RWD was the number two top web design trend last year, according to .net magazine, a publication for web designers and developers.


For training designers interested in practical examples of RWD, check out Social Driver's 20 Best Responsive Web Design Examples of 2012; and This is Responsive, a collection of tools and techniques for creating responsive web experiences.
