About the Webinar
The increased utilization of mobile devices for content consumption places demands on publishers to be more adept at engaging on mobile devices. As the device market has changed, size, capability, and usability of the devices continue to evolve rapidly. The capability of the web sites needs to keep pace with the changing market both in terms of rendering content on devices and managing the access to the content.
One of the first waves of design called for using custom Apps for mobile devices. Many of the early adopters learned quickly that App maintenance consumed more resources that anyone had predicted.
Access management is another consideration for the mobile experience. Simply put, publishers want be sure that users are authorized to have access to content. In the academic environment, the task is particularly troublesome because students are transient and very mobile. Rather than setting up onerous, session based manual login processes, content providers, usually enabled by hosting companies, have developed techniques to “pair” devices with authentication systems to ensure that access is available when requested, but not extended past a designated time frame. Management of this capability should be transparent intermediaries, such as librarians, but available for management should the need arise.
In this NISO Webinar, speakers will discuss multiple form factors including responsive web design and responsive design with service side components, that help institutions deliver a great experience to their users.
