Happy new year, all!
I've been asked to find another colleges and universities with established guidelines, best practices, etc for implementing mobile web on campus. In other words, something that establishes the rules (or helpful advice) if a department wants to create their own presence.
Any thoughts and/or links?
Our take so far at West Virginia University has been to allow for mobile templates in our in-house CMS. We haven't pushed the feature out live yet but I expect that will be as far as we go in directly supporting groups on campus with a technical solution.
If I had to have something in my back pocket to give to people related to mobile web I'd probably just point them to the W3C Mobile Web Best Practices available at http://www.w3.org/TR/mobile-bp/and the Mobile Web validator at http://validator.w3.org/mobile/.
I'm starting the new year off by trying to form a brown bag group on campus around mobile development. I'm also the staff advisor for a new mobile tech student group. If anything comes of those two groups I'll share on my blog.
PS - thanks for posting this here. I saw your tweet but wasn't in a position to comment at the time.
Thanks for the comments thus far. In terms of a centralized office directing other units/colleges how mobile should and/or must be done on campus, here's what I have so far:
Virginia Commonwealth is pretty close to what I'm looking for as it also mentions branding/workmarks in terms of design. I'm wondering if there are any colleges out there making suggestions about navigational elements and such. It may not exist but I figured it was worth asking.
