Context / rationale

In order to better coordinate OU activities in the mobile learning arena and related areas, a microsite was created to connect an existing group of practitioners, provide common guidance and project overviews as well as introduce novices to the area.

From its inception, the microsite was designed to be as open to external colleagues as possible, though some areas are visible to authenticated staff only.

 

Technologies and requirements

The microsite has been created in Drupal, with mobile-optimised themes as well as a number of feeds and integrations to other data sources. The aim is to provide a better converged experience, drawing together key information for practitioners.
