This is a presentation that was given by the owner of Springboard Marketing & Web Design at the 2013 Masters of Business Online (MBO) in Indianapolis, Indiana.

This presentation will help you understand the following aspects of responsive design:
- What is responsive design
- When did responsive design become popular
- Responsive architecture
- The increasing popularity of responsive design
- Google's standpoint on responsive design

The presentation also includes real world examples of responsive web design presented side-by-side: one being a normal computer monitor and the other a responsive version.

Everything is presented at a basic level so a deep understanding of web design is not necessary.
