Since the mass uptake of smartphones and tablets, there’s been a sea change in how people access and consume content. This is reflected in changing expectations: users want to access the same content on all their devices, rather than accepting a stripped down ‘mobile version’.
As a result, there’s been a gradual move away from fixed layouts designed for a set screen size and resolution. Instead, content creators and providers are turning to flexible, dynamic layouts that work on all devices, distributing rich content to mobile devices as well as desktops. This approach is known as responsive web design because the layout responds to the device’s viewport size and browser.
The flexibility offered by responsive design benefits both developer and user rather than offering multiple versions of a site or application, only one fully featured site needs to be developed.
More and more organisations are providing tablets and smartphones to their employees, or supporting ‘Bring Your Own Device’ initiatives. This means that increasingly we have to deliver learning solutions that work on all device types – that’s why we developed Adapt.
Rather than using a templated approach to elearning design, Adapt utilises a flexible mix of components that can be combined seamlessly to provide a fantastic learning experience. No more ‘click next to continue’ – the fluid layout produces intuitive scrolling pages that work beautifully on all devices.
