Palmer College

Palmer launches mobile website, RSS feed

Palmer College has launched a mobile version of its website, which has been optimized with smartphones and Internet-enabled cell phones in mind. While not the first college to offer a mobile site, Palmer is the first chiropractic college to do so. Palmer’s mobile site contains scaled-down information and fewer graphics to allow for easy navigation and less phone memory usage.

According to Earthbound Media Group, smartphone users “will nearly double from 2011 to 2015,” and it’s projected that more people will access the Internet via mobile devices than computers by 2014. Currently “mobile queries now make up almost 20 percent of all college and university queries.”

Palmer’s mobile website (http://m.palmer.edu) also has an RSS feed. RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a “format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, blogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS feed” (WhatIsRSS.com). Via an RSS feed reader or news aggregator, you can have news updates sent to you without visiting the sites you frequent, saving you time but keeping you up-to-date.

Visit Palmer’s mobile site here: http://m.palmer.edu. To subscribe to the RSS feed from the mobile site, click on the orange button.
