Responsive Web Design in #highered: One Design to Rule Them All?

My latest University Business column is now available in the February issue as well as online:
Responsive Web Design in Higher Education: One Design to Rule Them All?”

RWD for Higher Ed CourseIn this column, I make the case for Responsive Web Design in higher ed by sharing some data, examples and tips from early adopters (even the father of RWD himself, Ethan Marcotte). If you need to convince your boss to give you some time to work on RWD (or even maybe to sign you up for the 4-week online course on RWD for higher ed taught by Stewart Foss through my professional development company, Higher Ed Experts), this article should definitely help.

I’ve just started the course as a student this week (actually writing this post instead of doing my homework before the deadline – don’t I love my readers? ;-), and I can already tell you that the discussions about RWD websites among the higher ed web professionals in attendance are really interesting and engaging.

You might also want to have a look at the gallery of higher ed RWD sites I’ve put together (and that I’ll update soon with new websites) and the interviews with early adopters I published a few weeks ago.
