UITS and the IU Northwest Office of Marketing and Communications recently collaborated to re-design the campus’s main website, in the process adapting it to tablets and smartphones. IU Northwest is the first IU campus to comprehensively integrate responsive technology throughout its website.
The new site allows website browsers to navigate and read IUN.edu with minimal resizing, panning and scrolling. Carol Wood, executive director of information technology at the IU Northwest branch of UITS, said the redesign was a response to the increasing number of people who regularly use smartphones and tablets to browse the Internet.
“Our new website will now make it easier for our site visitors, from prospective students to alumni, to more efficiently and effectively find the information they need in a format that best fits their lifestyle,” Wood said.
