Louis Riel School Division Website

The new design includes a cleaner look that transfers well on mobile devices, a dynamic twitter widget, and other improvements to the user interface.

One of the main goals of the redesign was to leverage how LRSD communicates with parents, students, staff and the wider community.

Overview

The newly deployed LRSD website is more interactive and engaging, and aligns with the Government of Canada’s web standards for accessibility with support for WCAG AA, delivering a vibrant experience to the end-user. The new-look is designed to work on a range of mobile devices and screen sizes. Whether your phone is a touchscreen, a keypad or trackball, or you have a small or large screen, when you browse the mobile site, what you see will be tailored to the device you have in your hand.

The Push for Mobile

Every day more and more smartphones are activated and more websites are producing smartphone-optimized content. It’s no secret that the importance of Responsive Web Design (RWD) becomes clear when you consider that mobile internet access enabled by smartphones and tablets has nearly doubled the amount of time spent online since 2010.

As the mobile web industry continues to grow at incredible rates, SchoolBundle will continue to utilize and expand the SchoolBundle RWD module on all of our customers.
