Abstract [en]

This project investigates approaches for adapting desktop e-learning web pages to mobile devices using principles of Responsive Web Design. It gives a brief introduction on usability and responsiveness and how these concepts are important when developing online courses to be accessed by users in different devices. It explains an online course structure, its chapters and lessons, and how it is generated from a XML specification to HTML. After that, 3 different course web pages for desktop are optimized to be used in mobile browsers. The implementation section explains how the pages behave in smaller screens. In the conclusion, it is shown how some of the web pages design are not ideal for the mobile user and how to improve them in the future.

Abstract [sv]

Det här projektet undersöker metoder för att anpassa webbplatser inom fältet e-learning till mobila enheter med hjälp av responsiv webbdesign. Det ger en kort överblick över användbarhet, responsivitet och varför dessa koncept är viktiga under utvecklingen av plattformsoberoende kurser. Det ger ett exempel på en kursstruktur, dess kapitel, lektioner och förklarar hur dessa genereras från XML till HTML. Sedan visas hur 3 olika kurssidor optimeras för mobila skärmar. Sektionen Implementering förklarar hur sidorna beter sig på mindre skärmar. Sammanfattningen visar att några av sidorna inte är ideala för användning i små skärmstorlekar och hur de kan förbättras i framtiden.
