METRO webinar: Mobile Site Generation for Libraries

July 6th, 2010 Comments off

Mobile Site Generation for Libraries – Free METRO webinar

Join us in the TLTC conference room on Friday, July 16th at 1pm for this free METRO webinar.

Since the release of the iPhone just 3 years ago, more and more library users have embraced the trend of small-screen devices with highly capable web browsers. So why not provide information in a format designed for those smaller screens? The Mobile Site Generator ( is designed to flatten the technical hurdles faced by those new to mobile web development – all a developer has to do is fill in a form and tweak some HTML. Only very basic HTML knowledge is required. This presentation will briefly outline some existing options for developing a mobile website, and then focus largely on using the Mobile Site Generator to rapidly produce a site structure using the iUI framework ( Features and limitations of a generated site will be discussed, as well as future plans for the generator and next steps in building a mobile site.
