905 A Responsive Web Solution for a Complex Online Educational Platform
9:45 AM - 10:45 AM Thursday, June 26
The Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine has a custom LMS to deliver our online medical education offerings. This platform has been mostly adequate for about five years, but our offerings have expanded to new programs with many more learners in many different contexts. These learners want and often need to use tablets and other mobile devices to access and complete curriculum. The Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine learning platform needed a more flexible mobile strategy that could scale to multiple devices.
In this session participants will learn about the mobile strategy Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine developed. You will explore the challenges we were encountering and the rationale behind our strategy, and will discuss the many lessons learned during the process. You will leave this session with an understanding upon which your own scalable multi-device strategy can be built.
In this session, you will learn:
- What options are available for mobile learning delivery
- What responsive web design is and why you might implement it
- Which technology options exist for building a responsive web design
- Fundamentals of using Skel.js
