Metro State Roadrunners are known for being on the go, and the College is now offering a mobile website to keep students, faculty and staff in the know.
The mobile website can be accessed at m.mscd.edu by any internet-capable browser on a mobile device. The College’s full site can also be accessed by mobile devices, but the mobile version gives users pertinent information quickly and in a format tailored for smaller screens, says Director of Web Communications Chris Mancuso.
The project is part of the Office of Communications and Community Affairs efforts to keep the Metro State community connected with the College.
“Students, as well as faculty and staff, are increasingly plugged in with smart phones and mobile devices, and the Metro State mobile site is a way to help them engage digitally with the College,” Mancuso says.
The mobile site offers quick access to campus news and events as well as links to RTD schedules, emergency phone numbers and the College’s social media pages. Additional features, such as adding a mobile version of the College’s course catalog, are in the works for the site.
Mancuso encourages users to send feedback about their experience with the mobile site. Users can also submit comments by using the feedback link at the bottom of the mobile site homepage.
The mobile site, a first for Metro State, is part of an ongoing, worldwide trend to offer more ways to access information on mobile devices.
The mobile site is the latest innovation in the rollout of Site Manager, the new Web Content Management System. The WCMS, part of the Rightsizing with Technology Project, is responsible for the College’s new look on the Web and makes it easier for departments to update their websites. Site Manager also came with the capability to run a mobile site.
“Site Manager provides functionality and services like the mobile site with little to no ongoing expense,” Mancuso said.
