A few weeks ago, I wrote about Dave Olsen’s achievement in developing a mobile website for West Virginia University in just 19 days using MIT Mobile Web open-source platform.

Dave spent some time customizing the existing code (that’s the beauty of open-source projects) to integrate Google services and reduce the implementation process to just a few hours.

I followed his progress very closely and asked him if he would be willing to share lessons learned and his shortcuts with the higher ed community. Dave agreed.

As a result, he will present a 2-webinar series next month on how to build a mobile website for your institution in 24 hours or less, “Going Mobile.”

This series is composed of:

  1. a pre-recorded session – that can be watched on demand – showing the step-by-step development of an institutional mobile website in real time
  2. a live presentation – scheduled on October 21st, 2009 – explaining the main development principles and addressing questions from the audience.

Going Mobile: How to build a mobile website for your institution in 24 hours
October 21st 2009 – 1PM-2PM ET (rain date: October 28, 2009)

Can you find your way in a page of HTML code, use Google services and follow basic steps?
Then, you can develop a mobile website for your institution compatible with smart and regular mobile phones in no time and on a dime.

David Olsen, Professional Technologist at West Virginia University, will explain why and how to build your institutional mobile website in 24 hours (or less) and… for free. He will demonstrate all the steps involved in using MIT Mobile, an open-source mobile web platform, and will share the shortcuts and code he developed to implement the calendar, map and news features for WVU Mobile Web.
