Abstract

This report is intended to help staff of UK education institutions, involved in the development of content, gain an understanding of the emerging approaches to delivering services and content for mobile devices using the Web.

The use of mobile devices for the consumption and use of Web content and services has grown steadily over the last few years and continues to do so, with analysts predicting that mobile will soon exceed the traditional desktop PC as the most common means users interact with the Web and other Internet services.

This report looks at the growth of mobile, the state of the Web and gives an overview of approaches to delivering content and services optimised for the mobile context. This includes approaches to Web design for responsive sites, leveraging access to device functions and capabilities and the use of Web technologies to build mobile applications.

Whilst it is recognised that accessibility is a key issue in the creation and delivery of web content, given the scope of the topic this is an area that is not covered in this particular report. It is suggested staff wishing to investigate issues around web accessibility visit JISC TechDis for advice and guidance at http://www.jisctechdis.ac.uk/
