Recently, I showed off some of our VLE pimping at Frog’s National Learning Platforms conference in Birmingham, things like our Rewards system and My Classes – a whole section where a teacher can create seating plans, interact with the students via blogs, run a Random Name Selector etc…
I also showed everyone the mobile version of the VLE, built entirely inside Frog. Just using an HTML brick with the code below, web pages render at the width of the browser viewing them. It’s that simple.
<meta name = “viewport” content = “width = device-width, height = device-height” />
This code doesn’t detect if you’re using a mobile device. Personally, while I have implemented them on my own blogging engine, I don’t recommend detection code. Detection and redirection are simply too irritating for words. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve tried to visit a site after searching from Google, only to be redirected to the site’s mobile front page (Gamespot I’m looking at you).
