I am faced with a horse / cart situation...
- The Web Committee would like to know what icons students would like to see on an initial mobile web presence before we build it.
- I am more inclined to simply get the initial mobile web presence online now with the top 9 items from the Higher Ed Mobile Web Technical Survey (Feb 2011) and then ask for feedback / suggestions to grow the system.
- The compromise is to build it with an best-practice, proactive approach, test it privately with incoming students using an acceptable mechanism to evaluate what students want on a university's mobile web site, then take it live.
I need to create a mobile web mockup with the mechanism of choice and present it to the committee.
Has anybody run into this scenario with their management committee? What tool(s) did you use to evaluate or get feedback from your mobile web presence?
