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.
