  • Animoca – game dev, testing 400 android devicesTrends to build sites that use a Responsive Framework like Twitter Bootstrap, Skeleton orFoundation
  • All of our levels of our design have worked really well, we’ve had a really great increase in the quality of our site traffic, the bounce rate has dropped by about a third and the visit duration is increased by over 20%, which means that people are coming to the site and they are not instantly leaving and they are staying and looking around, which to us means that there is a greater chance that they are going to take some actions that we’ve set our as conversation goals or they are just really interested in learning more about the college. Our biggest increase is we’ve noticed has been in mobile traffic which has increased by about 150% since our redesign. That is an intense huge amount of increase. We can’t even really qualify it all as part of our redesign, although we think it is a lot. Some of it could simply be the turnover increase of global devices in recent years, well in not recent years but since we’ve posted in our redesign which is in January last year. Some of the anecdotal evidence that we’ve got though is really telling us that it was successful and that people are telling us they can find things more easily, this is our incoming students, our current students, our faculty staff, just people telling us hey, I needed something and it was exactly where I thought it would be or I searched for it and it was easy to find. One of the unexpected outcomes that’s actually been very interesting for us is we’re also part of our IT department and that is that our support calls for pages on mobile devices have increased specifically on things that are complex, that are a little bit more out of our control which are integrations with our SIS portal system, because our students are using it more and they are taking for granted the fact that it's going to work on any device they hit, no matter what. And at first that was really a reward for focusing on the mobile was that it's being used, it's being used a lot.
